PLEASE JOIN US ON THE 22ND JULY FOR THE EXHIBITION OPENING OF BOG COTTAGE’S LIFE IN THE COMMUNITY, FROM 6-9PM.

Life in the Community is a look back on two years of living and art making in Co. Sligo. Artists and best-friends Roberta Murray and Kian Benson Bailes reunited to join Dublin-born outsider artist Orla Meagher to create Bog Cottage Collective. The collective is named after the place and cottage where the artists lived on their return to Connacht.

Life in the Community is a collaboration, combining painting, sculpture, weaving, ceramics, drawing, audio and video work.

Life in the Community is: play, rural, sex, drinking, landscape, idols, cars, mountains, trees, wolves, Sligo, friendship, cooking, flirting, fighting, weaving, art, knitting, messaging, matriarchy, renaissance, kinship, community, love, hive mind, spirituality, DIY, gay shit, kisses.

Eimear Walshe’s The Land Question and The Land for the People and Iarlaith Ni Fheorais’s Turlough Invagination and Táim ag imeacht are exhibiting at the invitation of Bog Cottage.

THIRD WHEEL OPEN SUBMISSION

Bog Cottage was selected from applications to the “Third Wheel” open submission for our annual curated exhibition Peripheries 2022. Three artists were asked to propose an idea for an exhibition at Periphery Space for July 2022. The concept was based around ideas of awkwardness within groups, especially within the visual arts, where artists either work alone or form support groups that are based on survival rather than kinship. Third Wheel invited three artists to come together and make an exhibition that is formally relational and conceptually cohesive. This was not to be thought of as a group show of segregated individuals exhibiting alone within a group, but as a dialogue in the conception of the exhibition and the display of the work, together, in the gallery. Bog Cottage fit the ethos of the proposal perfectly.
