In the summer of 2021 Sean Hanrahan participated in IMMA’s A Radical Plot Residency, offering Hanrahan a platform to fully immerse himself in the histories, folklore, nature, and politics of a location that houses two organisations, IMMA & the OPW. Working and living within this dual function Hanrahan responded with Memory Anthem, a contemporary interpretation of a 32-point star motif inspired by the headstones in Bully's Acre. In Memory Anthem the star motif symbolises community, spirituality and the generational human cycle of activity of the IMMA/RHK site. An impression taken from a headstone was adapted for a print which was then represented as a handmade flag for a larger project presented on the west avenue of the site. Inspired by this evolving experience of the site and to celebrate IMMA30, Thirty years of IMMA, IMMA has commissioned 30 of these prints as a limited edition.
