SILVA Documentary at ‘The Living Mountain’ event in The Guesthouse, Chapel Street, Shandon, Cork City.
This is the premier of the documentary, filmed and directed by Fellipe Lopes. Lopes’ documentary brings you deeper insight into the making of SILVA – a site-responsive art project by Lay of the Land,  as artists Clare HendersonKari Cahill, Helena Doyle and Hazel McCague create a series of large scale art installations inspired and informed by the natural woodland of Knockomagh Wood, overlooking the wild landscape of the Atlantic Coast of Ireland.
Felipe Lopes is a Brazilian documentary filmmaker who is motivated by the desire to seek out culturally diverse projects and people. His work has taken him from the intense urban environment of São Paulo, to the depths of the Amazon Rainforest where he lived among tribes for 6 months, capturing the essence of their daily lives. He cycled, ran, and walked the Camino di Santiago with his camera, as well as creating visual content focussed on the urban environment.

The event is hosted by Bloomers Magazine. This discussion event will welcome the Contributing Writers and Artists featured in the second issue of Bloomers, ‘The Living Mountain’, to discuss their practises and inspirations taken from nature. The issue is a collection of essays, interviews, reviews and other texts about the work of several emerging Female Artists who are exploring environment in their work.

Bloomers is an independent publication that celebrates the work of emerging Female and LGBTQIA Artists based in Ireland. It is a collaborative effort between Artists and Writers to produce theme specific, printed publications that also has an active online community. Bloomers features interviews, reviews, essays about Artists and Artwork and other texts related to the theme explored in each issue.

SILVA was supported by The National Parks and Wildlife Services of Ireland, and is funded by The Arts Council of Ireland, Cork County Council, and by the generous donations from their audience
