Cork Based Silversmith Chosen To Create Art Work To Mark The Covid-19 Pandemic
Annemarie Reinhold’s sculpture will become part of the National Museum of Ireland’s permanent collection.
The collaboration between the museum and Design & Crafts Council Ireland aims to capture the essence of this unique time in our history for future generations.
Annemarie is originally from Germany and has lived in Ireland for the past 12 years.
She has been honoured with several awards for her work and will be creating a sculpture inspired by the comfort people got from working in their gardens when the pandemic first hit.
Explaining the inspiration for the piece she said; “Like lots of people, I was living in a small space in a city during the lockdown and it got me thinking a lot about nature and the privilege it is, especially at a time like this, to have your own outdoor space and to be able to enjoy the outdoors. Amidst all the change, nature and the seasons have also been a really important constant for us all, and planting and gardening have given a lot of people great comfort during difficult days. This is what I hope to capture in the ‘Spoon Garden’.
“I’m so honoured to have been awarded such an important commission”
