Folk Fiction

Translations in Material

Cultures By: Gareth Kennedy

Folk Fiction is a multi-media exhibition by visual artist Gareth Kennedy. The exhibition features film, photographs and objects. On display is work created over the past two years with the residents of Inís Oírr, on the Aran Islands and Gneeveguilla, Co. Kerry.

The exhibition highlights material cultures both traditional and contemporary, exploring ideas around craft and social values, landscape and invented traditions. Between February and April, Gareth Kennedy will work on a collaborative project with the Castlebar Men’s Shed and Mayo Arts Squad. The aim of the project is to produce a craft object inspired by local Mayo culture and skills, using IKEA furniture as a raw material. The object they make, together with a film about the making of it, will be launched in the Museum of Country Life on 6th April.
