In Far In Far Out, a collection of Sligo based artists take over empty shop units of Sligo town to help us reimagine and reconsider our collective future as we begin to emerge from lockdown. This visual art exhibition trail considers wonder and deep time, past mythology and imagined worlds, the inner and outer environment, memories within and without.
This past year of restrictions and lockdowns has forced the world to retreat into individual internal spaces, whilst at the same time giving people the opportunity to re-engage with community and place; to re-discover our local pathways, to re-connect with nature. Others again have felt their peripheries encroach; their spaces confined.
