Claí na Péiste (Worm’s Ditch)2022

Sibyl Montague’s Claí na Péiste accumulates culturally symbolic references to the pig in Irish folkloric storytelling, everyday life and contemporary ecology. The ubiquitous and day-to-day integration of pigs and their representation sits at odds with the concentration of pork farming across the country, bringing to the surface deep and conflicted underlying societal relationships to nature.

About the Artist

Sibyl Montague

Sibyl Montague's (B. Cork, Ireland) varied practice combines textile, digital, vegetable, and ‘poor’ material sources with the hacking and disassembly of commodity goods and media. Working across mediums, including sculpture, video and installation, her practice has at its heart an expression of fite fuaite - the concept of interconnectedness, belonging and the association between personhood, craft and materiality. She recently exhibited at Temple Bar Gallery and Studios, Dublin; VISUAL, Carlow; New Spaces, Derry; Pallas Projects, Dublin, Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris.
