This event weaves together perspectives from different parts of the community, old and new, through interviews, art work and objects sourced through local community groups such as the Bord Na Mona Men’s Shed, and New Horizon’s Refugee Advice and Support, which react to and reflect on the role the Bog has played in the community and psyche of the Midlands.
This work is contextualised in the exhibition with the work of local artists Sheila Hough and Margo McNulty. The work of Sheila Hough reflects on the place of the Bog in Irish literature and history through the paradigm of the “Bog Gothic” which captures the way in which the Bog subtly dominates the physical and psychological landscape of Midlands life.
