Retreat to Stone, Stone in Retreat | Nollaig Molloy, Catalyst Arts Graduate Award Show – to 15 Apr

Screening online at Catalyst Arts until 15 April

Retreat to Stone, Stone in Retreat is a phrase derived from periods of time spent at three specific sites in artist Nollaig Molloy’s rural locality. These places are inhabited by limestone outcrops, hawthorn trees and gorse bushes; the ever-present yet changing characteristics of the land. The visual and physical impact of the quarry industry, archaeological discovery and local authority engineering magnifies a human presence on the land. These effects are representative of a relationship that is fixated on value; the extraction of valuable resources and the priority of industrial or historical significance. Molloy offers an alternative exploration that is ventured through personal observation, poignant memory and tangible experience.

Artist Talk

An online artist talk with Nollaig Molloy will take place on Wednesday 31 March, 6.30 pm. Tickets available on Eventbrite.
