Everyone, Everywhere, Everyday is an illustrated journey through the north and south of inner city Dublin. Inspired by Ulysses, James Joyce, it traces part of the journey Leopold Bloom makes through the streets. Starting on the north side with the Oval public house on Abbey street to Lower O’Connell street to Bachelor’s walk crossing over to O’Connell street bridge and following on to south side locations Westmoreland street and finishing on College street. Applying the idea of the flâneur observing city life and acting as a witness to each scene drawn and photographed on of different perspectives. Working from these twelve illustrations were made which show the exterior urban spaces, streets and people of each place and interior view points from a cafe, bus window and various shops. The idea of this exhibition is to visually capture the energy and the ‘stream of life’ of contemporary Dublin.

What is Bloomsday? Bloomsday celebrates Thursday 16 June 1904, the day depicted in James Joyce’s novel Ulysses. The day is named after Leopold Bloom, the central character in Ulysses. The novel follows the life and thoughts of Leopold Bloom and a host of other characters – real and fictional – from 8am on 16 June 1904 through to the early hours of the following morning. Celebrations often include dressing up like characters from the book and in clothes that would have been the style of the era. One of the hallmark fancy dress items of Bloomsday is the straw boater hat. Celebrations come in many different forms like readings, performances and visiting the places and establishments referenced in the book. Joyce started writing Ulysses in March 1914, but put it aside again to finish his play Exiles. On 16 June 1915 he wrote to his brother Stanislaus to say he had finished the first episode of Ulysses. After Ulysses was published in 1922, Joyce’s friends began to mark 16 June as Bloomsday. In 1924, Joyce was in hospital, his eyes bandaged having had one of many operations on them. Friends sent him a bunch of white and blue flowers (white […]

Following their head-turning introduction in 2012 with the acclaimed debut EP ‘Forever’ and it’s follow-up EP ‘Don’t Save Me’, 2012, San Fernando Valley sisters HAIM kick-off the new year as the BBC Sound of 2013 poll winners with their new EP, ‘Falling’.
