James Barry Exhibition Centre MTU Bishopstown Campus

6-30 March 2023


Myfanwy Frost Jones was awarded the MTU Registrar's Prize from her Degree work, exhibited at the MTU Crawford college of Art & Design Graduate exhibition in 2022.

For this show Myfanwy will present new and recent work through - video, photographic, sculpture and mixed media presente at the James Barry Exhibition Centre this March. 

Her is passionate about environmental sustainability, biodiversity and local food networks whilst sustaining a growing eco-social art practice using text, found objects, photography and video in the wild landscape of the Beara Penninsula in Southwest Ireland. 

"My work explores personal histories of invasion, famine and colonisation, interrogating the human/nature relationship of industry within the countryside whilst observing the constant movement and change inherent in a working landscape and decolonising the archive." 



Infinite Harvests this new body of work was inspired by the many histories of famine and plenty over the centuries in my local area of the Beara peninsula, by the glut of feral Pacific oysters now growing on the shores of Kenmare Bay near my home and by the book, 60 Harvests Left, by Philip Lymbery that focuses on current crises in industrial agriculture, soil erosion and biodiversity. It joins my graduation work, Invasive Species, in examining the complicated relationships between land, labour and ecology and our changing expectations of the rural landscape.
