In association with Clonmel Applefest a solo exhibition of new work by visual artist and pigment maker, Annie Hogg at The Narrow Space Gallery, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary opens in September as part of this years AppleFest.
‘All The Rivers Were Female’ uses materials such as red ochre from The Comeraghs and peat from a Kerry bog. The pigments take on a timescape that spans from deep time – in the ochre, up along to this time – in the water of the river, which has been used in the making and processing of the pigments.
The subsequent mark making serves as a consideration on an ancient formation of geography, while clambering with current and potential climatic and social changes.
Exhibition opens Friday 24th September and runs until Saturday 30th October 2021.
Opening Hours Tuesday – Saturday 10.30am -5.30pm.
Please note that visitors must maintain social distancing and wear masks in line with Government guidelines.
