In her exhibit Connected, 23-year-old photographer Maya Bauer of Cleveland, Ohio explores turf cutting in Ireland. Her work celebrates country life, promotes conservation, and invites her audience to reflect on the tradition of turf cutting. Bauer welcomes dialogue between guests of all viewpoints and backgrounds in this space. Connected will run from October 20-25 in the Westival hub.
There will also be a special launch in McGings at 5.00pm on Sunday 24th October. Guests are encouraged to share their own stories, songs and memories from the bog as part of an open-mic singing & storytelling event. Andrew Lawlor and John Downing will also be performing at this very special opening and their songs will reflect on the theme of this exhibition.
