THE NARROW SPACE
CJF is delighted to present the film ‘From the Land of Múscraí’ as a continuous loop with The Narrow Space. We will also present an accompanying exhibition by the featured artists.
This film explores the works of contemporary artists living in the Múscraí Gaeltacht of West County Cork, tracing the links between their work and the landscape that inspires them in a colourful, multi-facteted exploration of the artistic process.
Featured artists include: Tadhg McSweeney (Painter); Helen Ní Chuill (Ceramic Artist); Gearóid Ó Duinnín (Musician & Painter); Helene Willems-Bogels (Interdisciplinary Artist); Meredith Flandreau (Potter); and Peadar Ó Riada (Composer & sometimes Painter). The importance of the Múscraí Gaeltacht; its landscape, its rich cultural heritage and unique local dialect provides an inspiring and nourishing home-base for each of the artists. The artists’ life journeys – and their work in an engaging diversity of mediums – provide resonating parallel narratives in this colourful multi-facteted exploration of the artistic process and its deep connection with the land of its inspiration.
