Festival: 2020


An Bhollain makes reference to my experiences of living on the most south westerly point of Ireland, West Cork. which is on the edge of Europe. I have made visual observations of the West Cork coast line, using drawing, photography and video recording of particular places such as Castlehaven Bay, Traharta Bay, Toe Head and the Islands of Flea and Horse.

The series of sculptures that I have made, make reference to this very hostile but visually engaging place, they set out to capture a place that is on an edge and that the next piece of land is over 5000 Kilometers away, across this vast ocean.
