Field Exchange: MODEL PLOT
Field Exchange is one of 15 projects being funded by the Creative Climate action fund through Creative Ireland. These projects will work with communities to empower people to make real changes about how they interact with the environment. Field Exchange is presented by Brookfield Farm in collaboration with artists Deirdre O’Mahony and John Gerrard.
Field Exchange will bring together art, food, and agriculture, creating opportunities for artists, farmers, scientists, and experts from relevant fields to congregate and exchange ideas about how to combat climate change, as well as about production and consumption.
Field Exchange will also present two artworks addressing climate change: Corn Work, by John Gerrard, will be presented on an LCD screen to the 12 Exchange groups in a barn on the farm and Model Plot by Deirdre, with the Loy Association of Ireland. The sculptural planting will be open to the public for 12 days over 12 weeks.
