“the last vestiges of colonialism”
a part or organ of an organism which has become reduced or functionless in the course of evolution.
Vestige is a selected body of work from Louth Craftmark members featuring contemporary craft design and visual art. Taking the word ‘Vestige’ as a starting point, members were asked to explore what trace, imprint or evidence of their practice they expect to leave behind for future generations. Artists include: Grace Brennan, Jane Campbell, Mary Cowan, Orlaith Cullinane, Maureen Finn, Robert Kelly, Michael Kobuladze, Caoimhe McCarthy and Rachel Tinniswood.
The selection panel was made up of artists Brian Hegarty & Vivienne Byrne, and Droichead Director, Collette Farrell.
