Mapping the Making

06 Jun - 31 Aug 2014 |

Following on from the success of ‘An Irish Wall’, five makers based in Ireland were invited by the Festival at the end of last year to produce a work in response to Vasconcelos’ Valquíria Enxoval, working with collaborators of
their choice.

This exhibition charts their journey to the finished work and will include notebooks, photographs, prototypes, samples and statements that illustrate the process and the narrative of each collaboration.
