New Sites-New Fields
‘New Sites-New Fields’ is an experimental project set up at Leitrim Sculpture Centre to investigate the changing ways landscape and environments are transformed historically and in the present. The project develops new models of arts practice and research that investigate the social and ecological concerns arising from human interaction with its environment.
Cross-disciplinary research will explore the natural and human landscapes, their interactions, dependencies and transformations and put these in the context of time and history.
These inquiries will inform the development of exhibitions and site-specific projects in the field; a publication and/or web project and finally the establishment of a Landscape and Environmental Arts Study Resource based at Leitrim Sculpture Centre.
Artists are requested to communicate with specialists to investigate and devolve the ecological significance of local sites. The choice of sites is informed by these engagements and a range of research themes as set by the curator. Artists respond to one or more of these themes when considering their proposal and to choose local sites that interest them.
