Oi, 2019

Inspired by the beautiful landscape of Brow Head, these flags frame the land, sea and sky. Due to the movement of the fabric, different elements of the view are revealed and concealed. The circular shape is a theme running throughout the artworks, with reference to the sun, moon and stars. The audience were invited to spend time with the flags, observing them at different points throughout the day and in different types of weather.

Oii was commissioned by Lay of the Land during Tombolo 19, a site-responsive residency in Ireland. The work was a collaboration between myself and artist Antonia Beard, Brenda Kearney, Melanie King, Millie Egan and Sofia Arredondo.
