Voices of Memory by Christina Kubisch began as an idea in 2014 when Dublin City Council was commissioning sound art as a Public Art Commission. Impressed by the initiative, the Goethe-Institut Irland suggested to invite artist Christina Kubisch on an exploratory visit to Dublin to see if she would be interested in making an artwork at Islandbridge. The impact of seeing Ireland's Memorial Records 1914-1918, illustrated by the Irish artist Harry Clarke, and the setting by the River Liffey was the beginning of a journey which led to the sound artwork Voices of Memory. The commission developed into a profound remembrance of the Irish killed in the First World War. During 2015 and 2016, just over 42,000 names were recorded by volunteers. These recordings became the basic material for Voices of Memory. The volunteer readers were composed of different ages, sex, nationalities, and occupations. The artist did not intervene much in the recordings other than to vary the density, rhythm and flow of names in this four-channel installation. Along with small breaks of silence, the composition includes sounds of underwater recordings made in the Liffey; the rhythm of the passing rowing boats, the hidden natural world of small insects and animals, and the flow of water itself. It was inaugurated on 29 June 2016 on the occasion of the centenary of the Battle of the Somme and officially ended in November 2018 to coincide with the centenary of the end of the First World War. After a new iteration of the original sound installation was launched in the form of a double CD in June 2018, the publication Voices of Memory was produced by Dublin City Council and the Goethe-Institut Irland in 2019. It is concerned with the realisation of the project and an insight into Irish history from the perspective of Christina Kubish, academics, artists and those who volunteered to read.
