Constructing a River, Chrysoula Drakaki and Matilde Meireles



Constructing a River is a multifaceted project by Matilde Meireles and Chrysoula Drakaki. The artists used field recording and photography to explore how the space along the River Lagan in Belfast has been shaped with different purposes in mind. Constructing a River frames the area between Weir 2 and the mouth of the river. At the centre of this search is the Lagan Weir.

The multidisciplinary nature of the project informed its publication: the field recordings and photographs are designed to be experienced together through a book, a set of postcards, and a website (including two 20 minutes sound compositions).
