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