Having worked at Hartstown Community School and Fingal Arts Office with the Waves project in 2016 we are back once more with artist Clodagh Emoe. In this 10-week project Clodagh and the 4th year students will create a collaborative artwork. Decisions such as the type of artwork and where it will be situated will be reached by the students themselves. The project has two phases - the first is characterised by focused artistic research and philosophical enquiry (current phase). The second by artistic experimentation and production. During a trip to IMMA today they viewed the work of artist Jac Leirner and the piece I reached inside myself through time by Dennis McNulty. In these works, the use of everyday materials - airplane tickets, rulers, building materials, coloured gels - opened up a world of artistic possibilities for the visiting students. In next week's workshop writer Sue Rainsford will visit the school to do a workshop that will focus on script-writing within contemporary art.
