Inisheer (Inis Oírr) is the smallest of the Aran islands in Galway Bay off the west coast of Ireland. The Inisheer Zibaldone notebook captures island life and island people.
A Zibaldone was originally a notebook kept by Italian merchants in the 14th century.
Alongside notes of a professional nature appeared stories, quotes and drawings.
This website complements the physical Inisheer Zibaldone notebook. It will track the creation of the notebook and it’s contributors. It is a hodgepodge of images, video, stories and information of a not so easily pigeon-holed nature.
This collaborative project is led by JesseJames, who were artists in residence at the Aras Eanna Arts Centre on Inisheer in the month of August 2017.
