tombolo 2017

Following on the success of last year's project we will return to Brow Head for the second Installment of TOMBOLO.

For the month of September eight artists - Emily Robyn Archer, Kari Cahill, Sophie Gough, Hazel Mc Cague, Rosie O'Reilly, Felix Power, Theo Shields and Anna Wylie will engage with the landscape at Brow Head, Mizen Peninsula, West Cork. During the time spent on the tombolo headland they will develop and produce site responsive sculptural installations. TOMBOLO supports emerging artists whose practices focus on the landscape, and where themes of environment, community, heritage and collaboration are intrinsic to, and reflected in their work


We believe that the interconnection of art, nature and people can be transformative. Our projects create greater accessibility to the arts in rural communities while allowing the visual arts to stand alone as a valuable and necessary cultural activity and experience.


For the culmination of the project the public are invited to journey to the tip of the Mizen Peninsula to experience the site and the works that respond to it. The exhibition will open to the public over the weekends of the 22nd of September and 29th of September 2017.

TOMBOLO’S success depends on individuals and organisations dedicated to unique and progressive artistic endeavours. The project is enabled by crowd sourced funding, local businesses, and supporters of the arts throughout Ireland. 

TOMBOLO has been part funding to date by The Arts Council of Ireland and by Cork County Council. We have launched a Fund it Campaign to raise the final funds needed to carry out this project. Click here to support TOMBOLO. 

THANK YOU! See you on the headland in September!
