Living Balance

Curated by Debi Paul

The artists and writers in the upcoming Living Balance exhibition in The Library Project in January 2022 work with print in its widest definition. They look to the traditions of the process reaching to its earthed materials such as copper and soil, weaving them along with their concepts. Caoimhe Dalton, Kate Fahey, Manchán Magan, Suzanne Walsh, and Hazel Egan‘s works investigate elements of ritual, pattern, voice and rewilding.
