BEEF traces the changing nature of land use in Ireland through the material history of cattle. From Queen Medb’s mythological covetousness to the tactics of the Ribbon Men and the Land League, the artist draws on local landscape and geography, ruminating on some specifically Irish approaches to interpersonal and international conflict.
