Request for Participation in Project on Artists Spaces

Francesca Castellano is seeking participation from artists with a short statement on the need for artist’s spaces for a project called Breathing Presence.

She will collect her breath, filling plastic tubing outside vacant and derelict spaces in Cork City. The tubes will be used in an installation to resemble human figures, leaving Ireland on an imaginary plane. Each figure will hold one of the statements, clearly visible.

Francesca is asking for participation from artists of all disciplines. Please share and send the statement in an email to

Catherine McLaughlin seeking participation from people based in Belfast

Catherine McLaughlin is a visual artist working and living in Belfast based in QSS Artists Studios. She is hoping to get some stories from others who live in Belfast too.

Catherine’s current work revolves around peoples experience of living in Belfast and how it has changed them, given them memories and shaped them.

She is asking for participation in a short questionnaire that asks a few questions about memories you have of Belfast. She will then incorporate these experiences into a new series of work.

Please share some of your time if you have it.

Request for Handwritten Letters | Miriam Mc Connon

Request for old or new handwritten letters for a public installation called the House of Letters by artist Miriam Mc Connon.

The installation will be exhibited in the Almyra Hotel Paphos, Cyprus in April 2017 and aims to travel to Ireland in 2017/2018
The ‘Ηouse of letters’ is an indoor installation that deals with the concept of immigration and displacement. The artist will create a classic house structure (measuring 3x3x3metres) using thousands of letters that she has collected from immigrants in countries all around the world. The installation allows us to contemplate the life of the immigrant. In recent times immigration has had such devastating consequences for many. In an attempt to counteract this, Miriam aims to express a sense of unification as opposed to separation as she brings thousands of immigrants stories together under one roof.

Please post letters Miriam Mc Connon, 6a prevezis st, Paphos 8028, Cyprus.
