(is)land is a collaboration among three multidisciplinary artists, completing the MA programmes in Studio Art and Art & Ecology at Burren College of Art. Their final degree exhibition examines themes of transcendence and transfiguration through artistic expression. Employing ideas of compassion across a spectrum of ecologies, the collective works explore the human experience within an environment.
Each artists’ distinct interpretations take viewers on a journey to reimagine the cosmos from the subatomic to the infinite. The works reference the higher self as an integral player in the survival of our species, magnifying and distorting scale in order to consider multiple perspectives in one experience. The result is a shared intellectual ecosystem of inclusion, empathy, and awareness to which all are welcome.
The works on view span a broad range of interdisciplinary practices, including digital media, film, sculpture, photography, print, performance, and installation.
