Irish aerosol drug delivery firm Aerogen has announced its support for Galway International Arts Festival’s Galway 2020 project, John Gerrard’s Mirror Pavilion structure, which can currently be seen on Claddagh Quay.
Mirror Pavilion is a seven metre cubed structure, with three sides and the roof clad in a highly reflective mirror and the fourth wall a high resolution LED screen, which plays host to two new artworks, Corn Work and Leaf Work. It will remain at Claddagh Quay until September 26, before moving to Derrigimlagh Bog, Connemara, from October 11 to 31.
Aerogen is the global leader in acute care aerosol drug delivery. Its award winning products are employed in over 75 countries throughout the world, helping to provide life-critical interventions from the emergency department through to the NICU. The company is committed to sustainability, and in 2019 planted more than 500 native Irish trees in Terryland Forest Park, while also funding the construction of a community nursery to provide thousands of saplings for local schools and community organisations.
'It is very exciting to have a multinational company coming out of the West of Ireland'
"Mirror Pavilion is a fantastic project to support," said Aerogen CEO and MD John Power, "as it ties in with our company ethos of being more conscious of our impact on the global environment as well as our continued drive to deliver cutting edge technology.”
GIAF CEO John Crumlish said: “In addition to a shared desire to be carbon neutral, it is very exciting to have a multinational company coming out of the West of Ireland, which is delivering cutting edge technology globally."
