Overwhelming

Famine Memorial is a sculpture located on the River Liffey in memory of the millions of Irish who died or were forced to emigrate Durantes famine that ravaged the country during the nineteenth century. The loneliness of the environment in which situation, the silence of the evening, only broken by a car, and the rawness of the images, you cause an upset and awe, beyond rejection that invites reflection on the opulence in which live.

Sobrecogedora

Famine Memorial es un grupo escultórico situado junto al río Liffey en recuerdo de los millones de irlandés que murieron o se vieron forzados a la emigración durantes las hambrunas que asolaron el país durante el siglo XIX.
La soledad del entorno en que se situa, el silencio del atardecer, sólo roto por algún coche, y la crudeza de las imágenes, te provoca un malestar y un sobrecogimiento, que más allá del rechazo, invita a la reflexión sobre la opulencia en que vivimos.

Men, women and children fleeing famine pointing port. These statues commemorate the Great Famine of the mid-19th century. It was the result of a disease that rots potatoes everywhere in Ireland. It caused the departure from the country of one million people and killed more than a million others. These emaciated does not leave you indifferent

Des hommes, des femmes et des enfants fuient la famine en se dirigeant vers le port. Ces statues commémorent la grande famine du milieu du 19 ème siècle.
Elle fut le résultat d'une maladie ayant fait pourrir les pommes de terre un peu partout en Irlande.
Elle a provoqué le départ du pays d'un million d'habitants et la mort de plus d'un million d'autres.
Ces visages émaciés ne vous laisseront pas indifférent
