We still have the wind in our ears from TOMBOLO 19 which was our most ambitious project to date. This year marked the beginning of a new series of short-term, site-responsive residencies β€˜RES 1-3’. The first took place in Kerry in March at Lauragh. The second and third at An Port, Donegal in July. These shorter residencies mark a move away from production to create the space for artists to explore and develop the direction of their work through engagement with the landscape.

TOMBOLO 16, 17 & 19, and SILVA have all taken the form of a two week residency followed by a public outdoor exhibition. The project artists work in a scale and manner dictated by the magnitude of their surroundings, creating large scale art works in response to their time immersed in the landscape. LOTL created a series of workshops and activities to run alongside the exhibitions which creates greater opportunities for public engagement with the project, artworks, and the landscape.

Explore each project, the artworks ,the artists and crew who participated in each site-responsive adventure.
