On My Radar 5 – Engage Artist Collective – Talk About Fracking

November 30, 2011

No green light from Paul regarding my competition idea yet, so I am holding my breath for a minute, but another On My Radar for you, a subject that will affect all of us around here one way or another, so check out the link to see what is happening on Friday afternoon in Carrick-on-Shannon!

An approach to look at hydraulic fracturing through artistic eyes and research, what stays behind in the landscape when we dig too deep, which elements of our lives will be at risk if we follow the path of promises and money, and which consequences may be impossible to undo for our lifetime to come. Or the lifetime of our children and theirs. A fresh  look at a pressing issue, four artists sharing ideas and working on the exhibition collectively, hence the title. Unfortunately I am not able to be there on Friday eve for the actual opening, so I had to peep my Dock Blogger camera into the exhibition space today and get a first glimpse of the work… I am sure the guys will spend all day to get ready for us on Friday, but I let you in on the preparations, Stephen Rennicks and David Spence getting the job done…  and while the video uploads, here the first picture!
