Loquium is a new online lecture series looking at the materialised forms of sculptural practices and the knowledge they produce. We hope to delve into the differences in artistic material enquiry and its material possibilities. We look to develop a new vocabulary to engage in discourses around how these sculptural enquiries lead into unknowable territories and spaces of not knowing where often the artistic research is not separable from the art itself and how artists themselves bring new thinking into the world that is often beyond traditional academic understanding.

The National Sculpture Factory is a place of production; a place where artworks are always becoming, we are interested here not simply in the finished artworks themselves but the disparate origins of ideas that spur artists to make what they make.

Visions of an Unsettled Earth – Panel discussion

‘Visions of an Unsettled Earth’ is an exhibition that explores ideas of temporality, transience and transformation in the environment. It features new and recent works created by the Cork County-based artists Debbie Godsell, Fiona Kelly and Sarah O’Flaherty.

Join us for a panel discussion with the artists and the Cork city-based art critic Sarah Kelleher on Saturday, 3 October, at 2pm. The event is free but advance booking via Eventbrite is required (link below).  COVID-19 prevention-related measures are in place.
