Interactive artwork 1 : Dead nature being revived

For the Junction Fringe Festival Exhibition Brigid Teehan decided to incorporate some shop display furniture to create an interactive piece. Gallery visitors were invited to draw and/or write on a revolving four-sided paper-covered tower. The following is from the blurb :

"It is a six day recording of a network of memories in response to the title ‘Dead nature being revived’. The theme is one of hope: that the possibilities of regeneration are limitless and out of destruction can come new life and growth.

Participants can choose to equally ignore the title and make whatever marks/images come to mind or react to others work on the paper tower."

Most participants chose the latter.

Junction Fringe Festival Exhibition

Flyer for event depicting each artists' work.

This pop-up exhibition was run in the fringe section of Clonmel's annual festival, the Junction Festival, a nine day long multi-disciplinary arts festival featuring modern theatre, dance, family spectacles, street theatre, rock, world music and trad. It was the 10th anniversary of the festival this year and while it has always had some visual art elements to it, it now included a gallery exhibition.
A disused commercial unit was made available to us. The venue this time was a former mobile phone shop in Market Place, Clonmel a couple of doors down from our 1st exhibtion space. As before it was arranged courtesy of Pat Quirke.
