..perhaps we shall never see each other again; perhaps we shall meet again but fail to recognise

each other: our exposure to different seas and suns has changed us.

– Roland Barthes

On Tuesday 19th of May and Wednesday 20th of May 2020 from a foothill in the Silvermines Mountains, we present “Field Test” from the comfort of your own home.

The screenings will be presented on Instagram (@sculputureandcombinedmedia and @photographyfilmvideo) and live streamed to and

In response the idea of remoteness, disconnection and a communal need to convey pieces of work by students of the Fine Art programmes of Limerick School of Art & Design, Virginia Commonwealth University and Edinburgh School of Art, The University of Edinburgh, a presentation over 2 nights will be live broadcast to several social media platforms. The project is also grateful of the support from Visual Artists Ireland and The Visual Artists’ News Sheet, who will be covering the event.

The screening takes place from a lone field, with only the company of a few horses.

Presented on a 16 x foot cinematic screen, this “pop up” installation acts as a kind of ode to the “drive-in cinema” but is not accessible by anyone due to the confinement. A programme of over thirty short moving image works, films and performances to camera will be broadcast through Facebook Live and Instagram TV and will be accessible to all who follow the disciplines online.

This is a collective moment created to support this next generation of artists at a time of great crisis.
