Practice-based research and the unique nature of visual arts practice in rural contexts. 

This exhibition is an outcome of Deirdre’s PhD research: it explored how rural-based artistic projects contribute to contemporary international art practice and relate to wider 21st century discourses. 

Presented as archives, these re-present the documentation of the X-PO project alongside Deirdre’s other public artworks and personal practice. The exhibition incorporates documentary videos, paintings, photographs and found objects that provide a critical account of the role socially engaged artistic initiatives can play in the Burren, County Clare.
