03 Oct 2015 - 10 Jun 2016 |

Artist Rhona Byrne's hand-made objects, installations and collaborative, event‐based, projects explore the interactions between people and their habitat. Bolthole invites visitors to construct and reconstruct the installation to make their own environments. The spaces can be individual shelters/dens or a large configuration of pieces to make one large space. Participants construct and inhabit an ever-changing moving installation.
