FARM

2016

Trans-Atlantic exchange to highlight farming in the face of climate change.

FARM photographic/text installation, exhibited as part of Hybrid 2, the second exhibition arising from an exchange between artists in Ireland and Colorado USA. The struggle to continue farming in the face of climate change and within globalized marketplace are clear on both sides of the Atlantic.

During Hybrid 1, research visits were carried out to farmers and ranchers specialising in grass-fed livestock production on a residency at  RedLine, Denver USA and in Ireland revealing the increasingly precarious economic position. The installation included the research, presented alongside the words of farmers in both places.

Supported by Culture Ireland, The Arts Council of Ireland and Redline Denver.
