On 24 February 2023, young people participating in groups and programmes based in Uillinn West Cork Arts Centre visited IMMA to collaborate with museum professionals and create an artwork in response to the exhibitions Kevin Mooney: Revenants and Patricia Hurl: Irish Gothic. These participants included; Maksym Babek, Finn Donovan, Kassi Duane, Hetty Gazzaniga, Mich Maguire, Lucija Kluzniak – Madajczak, Nori Kluzniak – Madajczak, Leo Robb, Kai Kluzniak – Madajczak. Selected artworks were observed, discussed and responded to in a studio context using various media, igniting new thought-provoking and exciting perspectives.

Following their visit to the Museum, these participants met weekly over two months to continue to explore their experiences of IMMA exhibitions in a series of workshops facilitated by Tomasz Madajzcak and assisted by Sylwia Migdal. Tomasz described the process as, “incorporating experimental abstract drawing, painting, basis of video art, sound art and deepened spatial awareness as a base for performance and installation art. The young people are amazing to work with. Their alive imaginations and creative minds open up new areas of artistic explorations and connect the existing art with new perception of the youth… the next step is to meet other young people, from different parts of Ireland who are driven by new ways of looking at art and creating new connections through art with the surrounding world.

The young people’s creative interpretation and exploration of these exhibitions will be presented at IMMA on 29 April and Uillinn West Cork Arts Centre from 10 June to 15 July 2023. The exhibition includes individual mixed media artworks and a live dance performance.
