Fragility of Flight is an anthropomorphic tragi-comedy in visual art, music, film and origami. Birds and humankind merge to face survival in the wake of profound changes to the natural world.

Artists Keith McIntyre and composer Karen Wimhurst were commissioned by Taigh Chearsabhagh to create a gallery installation combining Keith’s large ink drawings and performance with Karen’s improvised woodwind and birdsong composition.
