'Famine' (1997) was commissioned by Norma Smurfit and presented to the City of Dublin in 1997. The sculpture is a commemorative work dedicated to those Irish people forced to emigrate during the 19th century Irish Famine. The bronze sculptures were designed and crafted by Dublin sculptor Rowan Gillespie and are located on Custom House Quay in Dublin's Docklands.

This location is a particularly appropriate and historic as one of the first voyages of the Famine period was on the 'Perserverance' which sailed from Custom House Quay on St. Patrick's Day 1846. Captain William Scott, a native of the Shetland Isles, was a veteran of the Atlantic crossing, gave up his office job in New Brunswick to take the 'Perserverance' out of Dublin. He was 74 years old. The Steerage fare on the ship was £3 and 210 passengers made the historical journey. They landed in New York on the 18th May 1846. All passengers and crew survived the journey.

In June 2007, a second series of famine sculptures by Rowan Gillespie, was unveiled by President Mary McAleese on the quayside in Toronto's Ireland Park to remember the arrival of these refugees in Canada.

The World Poverty Stone

The World Poverty Stone is a commemorative stone marking the United Nations International Day for the Eradication of World Poverty. It is sited to the east of the Famine Sculptures on Custom House Quay in the heart of Dublin's Docklands.

This limestone memorial was commissioned as a gesture of solidarity with people living in poverty around the world. On the 17th of October 1987, in response to the call of Joseph Wresinski - founder of the International Movement ATD Fourth World - 100,000 defenders of human rights gathered in Paris to honour the victims of hunger, violence and ignorance, to express their refusal of extreme poverty and to call on people from all walks of life to unite to ensure respect for human rights. A commemorative stone proclaiming this message was inaugurated on this occasion on the Plaza of Human Rights and Liberties - where the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed in 1948.

Since then, on the 17th of October each year, people from all walks of life, gather throughout the world to express their solidarity and commitment to ensure that everyone's dignity and freedom are respected. On 22nd of December 1992, the General Assembly of the United Nations declared 17th October the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. There are now over 30 replicas of the original stone now located around the world. These sites have become places of honour for people living in poverty in the world, places where people gather to reject the inevitability of poverty and social exclusion and places of friendship and solidarity where people from all backgrounds can gather together. Around the world, annual commemoration take place at the site of the stones to mark the 17th October UN International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.

The artist - Stuart McGrath, based in Co. Wicklow, is a master craftsman; his training is in sculpture, architectural and classical stone carving. All of his stonecutting is done by hand using traditional methods.

同时唤起爱尔兰新旧之间的回忆

我知道从你经过的旅游巴士上可以看到这座美丽的雕塑,但我强烈推荐在这里停留一段时间,来感受Rowan Gillespie雕塑营造的悲剧性的气氛,只需要从奥康奈尔向码头桥走很短一段路。这座美丽的艺术品很好地坐落于利菲河北岸的爱尔兰金融服务中心和南岸的现代阿尔斯特银行的办公室之间。

我们走了很远的路才找到这些雕像,它一点都没令人失望,但是我们认为它的地理位置不太好。实际上我们不得不走过一些混乱、喧嚣的街道才到那儿。它要是位置更好一些就好了。

他在河畔,我是在雨后的晚上在河岸散步时经过的, 晚上的灯光打下去,有点吓人, 不过他其实是为了纪念过去因为饥荒, 而移民的爱尔兰人。

很明显大饥荒是爱尔兰人永远的印记,这个雕像令人为之一振,让人非常感动,特别是如果你有特地去了解过爱尔兰历史上这段可怕的时期的话。

这是19世纪中间大饥荒受害者雕像,爱尔兰大饥荒受害者的雕塑距离O'Connell大街仅有几步之遥,在利菲河的北侧。挨饿的人,甚至狗的雕像,竖立在那里,与喧闹繁华的街道交通形成鲜明对比,眺望大量现代建筑,你不由会想,“怎么会允许这种情况发生?”注目这些面孔,感受到他们的痛苦,我敢说你走时没有变化。对于那些对于大饥荒历史感兴趣的人,这里是一个重要的纪念。(译者注: an Gorta Mor是爱尔兰语,意为大饥荒。)

这位艺术家完成了他的使命,每一个见到它的灵魂,不管是在移动的车辆上或是漫步在利菲河边,都会被这些雕像所影响。数百万人死于饥饿或者移民国外,而食物却从爱尔兰出口到英国。这个信息听起来更像是一次种族灭绝而不是饥荒。这里离Jeannie Johnson很近,对所有人都免费开放。旅行途中很好的反思时刻。

这是一些相当棒的艺术作品,就在码头区附近,很好的刻画出了正在遭受磨难不得不选择移民的人们,这里有专门供游客参观欣赏雕塑的小路,更棒的是参观不需要花钱。不错!

我在猫途鹰网上看过这些雕塑,所以知道我将要看到的是怎样的,但是我的另一半不知道。她看到所展示的雕塑就感到有点不安,所以我猜这个雕塑家的目的达到了。30秒后她想去走走,也没进一步审视这些雕塑。他们显得很挣扎,带着行尸一样的表情和骨瘦如柴的身躯。这六个雕像也不能为在19世纪中期爱尔兰饥荒中丧失的100万条鲜活的生命这个事实做出公平的评判。所以在你的心底里,这六个雕像是由160000条生命组成的。

这一系列惊人的人物雕塑展示,象征着什么?一条船?在求救?非常值得一看。这真的感觉是把马铃薯饥荒带回了家,苦难和绝望严峻导致很多移民,他们正在渴求一些更好的东西的。 强烈推荐来这里参观。
