The latest installation by artist Christina Reihill entitled ‘Wit’s End’ explores the natures, questions and desires of the soul, through the life, work and death of American writer Dorothy Parker.

Parker, who was well-known for her bon mots, was a prolific writer and poet. The witty woman was one of the founding contributor’s to the New Yorker magazine in the 1920s, and continued to write almost up until her death in the sixties. Her dry humour has been celebrated and enjoyed for long after.

Through this installation the artist re-imagines an internal narrative for Parker, envisioning her writing and completing the novel she never had a chance to finish, ‘Sonnets to Suicide’.

The installation will be on show at Smock Alley Theatre from March 14-18 and admission is free. For more information, visit www.smockalley.com
