Monica de Bath presents ‘PLOT/CEAPACH’, curated with Denise Reddy at Dunamaise Arts Centre.
An artists’ residency at a Bord na Móna peat excavation site at Ballydermot Works, Co. Kildare opened up conversations and interactions with staff and led to Monica’s ongoing, evolving arts practice investigateing tensions between making a living and ecological land use.
This exhibition explores the changing nature of land use, biofuels, restoration and renewable energy projects on the Bog of Allen and Atlantic Bog in Ireland.
A series of related workshops will also be facilitated by Monica de Bath.
Dunamaise will host a related seminar Sites of Tension / Sites of Collaboration on Sat 19 Nov with Visual Artists Ireland.
