The jury was extremely impressed by the work of Eamonn. It expressed clarity, vision and an extraordinary talent. The visitor steps into a circular hut; the air is scented with baby oil. Eamonn gives performances at different times, but the work also functions without. A video of what previously occurred in the space is constantly playing. It is a work that perpetually changes; with every performance, the hut is also transformed by the touch of the performer.    
According to the jury, it actually presents the obverse of an artwork: the elements that are needed to create a work.
Eamonn uses elements and objects from a plethora of different worlds and inspirations: fetish culture, tribal art, pop art, and so on. The members of the jury experienced the result as a personal mini-mythology. The props Eamonn uses during his performance are made by hand, by the artist. The delicacy with which he makes his work is also a testament to courage. The jury felt that, in finally arriving at this point, Eamonn must have gone through quite a struggle during his time at art school. His graduation project is restrained, slow and silent, but beneath that vulnerability lies a gruesome undercurrent; a contrast between fetish and torture, and tender rituals. The jury looks forward to seeing the work presented in a larger institution or in a museum. They went on to say, even if it proves painful, they are convinced he will remain authentic and true to himself.
