Local Curiosities is a publication that accompanies a collaborative project by artists Aleana Egan & Pádraic E. Moore. It presents a portrait of the South County Dublin coastline, referencing such literary genres as guide books, travelogues and historical chronicles – works that concern themselves with the evocation of places and events as opposed to individuals – and diverges from them.
