'Le Chéile' - A Welsh / Irish print collaboration

A unique visual dialogue began between two prominent Print Studios in Ireland and Wales namely the Leinster Printmaking Studio, Co. Kildare and the Regional Print Centre, Wrexham, Wales. Irish artists collaborated with Welsh artists to explore themes of land/language/place/sense of belonging. A series of working prints, drawings, collages and text travelled back and forth across the Irish Sea, with each collaborating artist responding to and working on the artworks.

» View Exhibits Prints » Liam Ó Broin - Why artists make prints
The seed for this innovative project originates from the thinking and writings of John Berger, who conducted an ongoing visual correspondence with artist Marisa Camino.

Welsh artist Alison Craig collaborated with Irish artist Deidre Shanley on investigating the function and occupation of the land and its buried memories. They have worked directly on each otherŐs prints transforming them from one print medium to another. Monica de Bath and Steffan Jones-Hughes examined ideas of home and domesticity, printing on the posted envelopes that were posted back and forth.

The overall result is this visually and technically rewarding exhibition, which will tour other venues in Ireland, Wales and will participate in the Celtica festival in Adelaide, Australia in December 2009. TG4 broadcasts a review of Le Chéile on their arts programme IMEALL at 11.15 pm on Wednesday 11th March with Pamela de Brí as one of their panel guests.

The exhibition will be opened by Lucina Russell, Arts officer for Kildare Co. Council

Artists Pamela de Brí, Alison Craig and Liam Ó Broin will give a talk
on Thursday 12th March from 3pm - 4pm
