No green light from Paul regarding my competition idea yet, so I am holding my breath for a minute, but another On My Radar for you, a subject that will affect all of us around here one way or another, so check out the link to see what is happening on Friday afternoon in Carrick-on-Shannon!
An approach to look at hydraulic fracturing through artistic eyes and research, what stays behind in the landscape when we dig too deep, which elements of our lives will be at risk if we follow the path of promises and money, and which consequences may be impossible to undo for our lifetime to come. Or the lifetime of our children and theirs. A fresh look at a pressing issue, four artists sharing ideas and working on the exhibition collectively, hence the title. Unfortunately I am not able to be there on Friday eve for the actual opening, so I had to peep my Dock Blogger camera into the exhibition space today and get a first glimpse of the work… I am sure the guys will spend all day to get ready for us on Friday, but I let you in on the preparations, Stephen Rennicks and David Spence getting the place ready for the opening of the exhibition of work by the four artists selected for the Trade residency program 2011. Featuring group work undertaken as Engage Artist Collective as well as individual work featuring David Spence, Brigitta Varadi, Stephen Rennicks, David j and David Michalek. To be opened by Declan McGonagle and there will be a presentation by Dr. Aedín McLoughlin of Glenwood Research. Part of the Trade 2011 conference at The Dock. http://engagecollective.wordpress.com/
Thank you Stephen and David for showing me around!
