THE location chosen by the latest Star Wars movie crew – Brow Head in Mizen – is now to become the location of an art project by six artists, provided a crowd-funding plan is successful.
From September 19th to the 2nd October Anna Wiley, Emily Robyn Archer, Hazel Mc Cague, Kari Cahill, Liliane Puthod and Margie Jean Lewis will engage with the landscape on the headland to develop and produce site-responsive sculptural installations. The project is called Lay of the Land.
‘Artistically our aim is to drive artists and the experience of art outwards, into the wilderness forging deeper connections with Irelands natural landscape, resulting in a more dynamic work flow that will produce unique and informed sculptural artworks,’ says Hazel.
The exhibition will be open to the public from September 30th until October 2nd but the organisers need a cash injection of €6,000 to progress the plan, and are using the crowd-funding model as a way of securing the funding.
‘Lay of the Land’s success depends on individuals and organisations dedicated to unique and progressive artistic endeavours. The project is enabled by crowd sourced funding, local businesses, and supporters of the arts throughout Ireland,’ the organisers have said.
