2019 has been a whirlwind of creative projects! We have worked with an incredible team of artists and crew( from as far as Mexico and Australia, and as local as down the road) to produce an engaging and immersive collection of artworks in wild and beautiful locations around Ireland.
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 ‘RES 1-3"‘. The first took place in Kerry in March at Lauragh. The second and third at An Port, Donegal in July.
Finally we have an entirely new site-responsive art project called Calafort which will take place in Árainn Mhór. This will round up our 2019 programme so we hope to see you on the island!
Árainn Mhór Island is the backdrop to our final project of 2019.
Sparked by the “community within communities” of the Island and the unifying force of shared heritage, Lay of the Land will create a exhibition-lab which will travel around the island over the weekend 13-15 September.
The lab will create an opportunity for islanders and audience alike to engage with visual art within the context of how their own landscape has shaped their culture.
More details to be announced soon.
