We live in an earth facing ecological and climate crises, species extinctions, and global pandemics. How can we repair our collapsing environments? Learn from the creative practices of four artists working in Ireland – Monica de Bath, Cathy Fitzgerald, Pauline O’Connell and Seoidín O’Sullivan – who ‘stay with the trouble’ and make ‘kin in lines of inventive connections’ (Haraway, 2016).  

Earth Writings: Bogs, Forests, Fields, Gardens includes artwork, exhibition vignettes, and essays with the artists in conversations with scholars Patrick Bresnihan, Nessa Cronin, Gerry Kearns and Karen E. Till. 

With introductions by Lucina Russell and Karen E. Till. The multi-media book launches will include images of artists’ works, readings and conversations by the contributors, followed by questions and answers from the public.  

The book launches are part of the online Temple Bar Gallery Dublin Art Book Fair 2020, which embraces arts-practice publishing, artist-run culture and participatory events at the intersection of art and contemporary culture. The first launch takes place during GeoWeek 2020, which highlights the importance of geographical knowledge for understanding the world around us to address contemporary social, political and environmental issues.  

The second launch will contribute to Creative Rathangan Meithal’s ‘Layers 3’ event and include artist-scholar Christine Mackey as a guest commentator.
