This workshop is based on the artwork Repressed Apple, 2015, by Siobhan Hapaska currently on view as part of the IMMA Collection exhibition Ghosts from the Recent Past. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on the association of the natural and man-made worlds led by Evy Richard and Barry Kehoe from IMMA’s Visitor Engagement Team. Particularly in these times of confinement and re-assessment and especially on our influence on the planet systems, we will explore the possibility of a more harmonious relationship.

Using and exploring the IMMA grounds, participants will be inspired to envisage a re-setting of the parameters between wild-life and human co-habitations, offering imaginative and positive visions and solutions for nature’s “green cube” to be re-harmonised with the man-made “white cube”.  

Some art material will be supplied but participants are encouraged to bring their own. 

Appropriate footwear and clothing are recommended as this workshop takes place outdoors. Due to current regulations on social distancing, places are limited to 10, so book early to avoid disappointment. If you would like to book your free place – book here.
