West Cork Arts Centre


For the first time, Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre will remain open until 11.30pm where you can drop in to see our latest exhibition Cnuasach, a solo exhibition of paintings by SinĂ©ad NĂ­ Mhaonaigh. Comprising lusciously-painted large scale and smaller scale canvases which are rooted in the Irish landscape, this exhibition continues the artist’s concern with the elaboration and exploration of bounded space.

Launching on the night and available to view also until 11.30pm, is Bringing Art Home – In West Cork, an exhibition drawn from a postal project spanning the past year, with West Cork Day Care participants working with artists Michael Greenlaw and BĂ©nĂ©dicte Coleman. Drawings, paintings, poems and written recollections, reflecting the memories and present-day concerns of the participants will be on view at Uillinn until Saturday 6 November.

Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre are also delighted to present four experimental art films which will be screened from 7pm to 11.00pm (40 minutes, on loop all evening). Developed by Tomasz Madajczak with collaborators from around the world, these films are part of the No Space project and are supported by Platform 31, a nationwide, artist development scheme by the 31 Local Authority Arts Offices in collaboration with the Arts Council.

Shifting Spaces was created in collaboration with Swedish artist Helle Kvamme; Disturbed Ground is based on collaboration and a sound performance with Cork city-based artists Irene Murphy and Mick O’Shea; Mattering is based on an installation which was formed at Uillinn and simultaneously in Australia with artist Pattie Beerens; and Becoming a Painting is based on a video interaction with artist Zainub Mawaz-Khan from Pakistan.
