Réaltbhuíonta (Constellations) presents recent work by studio faculty at Burren College of Art. As practicing artists, faculty who lecture in the college’s studio programmes are active in research across a number of platforms, utilising multiple forms of artistic practice as modes of engagement with a diverse range of research projects. Investigating place, ecologies and politics, such practices when brought together form a constellation, a distributed and evolving map that provides a space for critical reflection on the interconnected worlds we currently inhabit.

Volunteers are always welcome to come for an hour ortwo. If interested, please contact 0872279071 to hear of our next meitheal or to join the Volunteer Whatsapp. You can follow us on FB/Insta @KBtreegang, but we tend to only announce big planting days|
