Broken Fields is a multi-disciplinary collective made up of individual practitioners Louise Harrington, Enya Moore, Aideen O' Donovan and Kate O' Shea. Broken Fields brings together experience, knowledge and practice from the fields of socially engaged art, architecture, community work, activism, research and writing. The name Broken Fields refers to the breaking down of disciplines, siloes and fields. In the breaking down of these constructed boundaries, Broken Fields brings together the strengths of diverse practices in processes, projects and spaces that are deeply place-based. Enter the Broken Fields installation in the micro-gallery window space, alone or with another, to experience the impact of such social spaces in limited environments. Micro Gallery window space, 5pm-9pm.
The installation will continue from 18th September to 6th October
