This work was produced during the residency “Welcome to the neighborhood” in Askeaton Contemporary Arts run by Michele Horrigan and Sean Lynch.
I infiltrated and followed a local hunt around the Askeaton hinterland. Franticly running along riverbanks and over ditches to keep up with packs of dogs, minks and cunning otters who all escape to safety, my experience acted as a very literal form of fieldwork! The artwork was presented through text, drawings and sound at the Civic Trust and as an audio piece emanating from underneath a whitethorn bush. Its central character, told through a rambling narrative, is a seemingly isolated figure who desires a meaningful relationship with the objects and rituals surrounding him.
