Ennistymon Courthouse Gallery and The Artists’ Resource Room
are pleased to present the launch of
One Kind And Another by Fiona Woods.
Fiona Woods |One Kind And Another | Book Launch & Panel Discussion | Ennistymon Courthouse Gallery, Co. Clare | February 6th 2pm
Fiona Woods’ new publication One Kind and Another is the outcome of her episodic collaborative practice collection of minds. This practice asserts the artist’s embededdness within and reliance upon social, geographical, and conceptual networks.
This new publication documents a number of collection of minds episodes which took place over a period of 18 months (2014-2015). The episodes outline contrasting worlds from the High Plains of Colorado to the tracking of goat herds in the Burren. They produce a myriad of dialogues with others, including artists with a strong rural focus, gun club members and goat farmers. The publication captures a multitude of engagements with the material world, both sensuous and intellectual.
Woods will be joined by members of the Ground Up Artists Collective who participated in some of these episodes, for a discussion about collaboration as process of discovery, as innovation, as risk.
Please join us on Saturday the 6th of February.
We’ll start the afternoon at 2pm with tea and coffee.
At 2.30pm discussions will begin, concluding by 4pm.
Fiona Woods is a visual artist whose practice crosses critical inquiry, artistic intervention and international research collaborations. She uses public space, social situations and the institutional site of art as circuits for the production and distribution of works that explore ideas of public interest or what we have ‘in common’. She regularly operates in a co-productive capacity with others under the heading collection of minds. Woods is a recipient of the 2015 Fiosraigh Scholarship for a PhD candidate at the Centre for Transcultural Research and Media Practice, DIT, and she lectures at Limerick School of Art & Design. www.fionawoodsartist.wix.com/collectionofminds.
