Special Thanks Alice Maher

This film was funded by The Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and supported by The Works on RTÉ Television.

In 2012, the Arts Council of Ireland celebrated the 60 years of supporting the arts with a series of exhibitions titled 'Into the Light'. The exhibitions consist of works selected from over 1,000 pieces which make up the Arts Council collection.

To mark the occasion, the Arts Council and RTÉ supported the making of four short films which respond creatively to the collection. Alice Maher's 'Nettle Coat' was one of them.

The Nettle Coat

An evocative and thoughtful short film which reflects the public's response to one work from the collection: Alice Maher's 'Nettle Coat'.
