A five-day residential workshop in the epic French Pyrenees, led by Array Collective
Workshop dates: 24/05/2023 – 2023-05-29
Array Collective artists Jane Butler, Emma Campbell and Clodagh Lavelle will facilitate a five-day workshop drawing upon ancient mythology and folklore as a way to reflect stories about contemporary human conditions. Through site-specific drawing sessions, worldbuilding from found ephemera, collaboration and performance, we’ll develop characters that will allow us to consider our own stories, and reflect issues that we care about within our communities.
Array Collective are a group of eleven artists rooted in Belfast, who create collaborative actions in response to socio-political issues affecting Northern Ireland. The collective has been working together since 2016, galvanised by the growing anger and momentum in local movements advocating for human rights. Array Collective reclaim and questions traditional identities in the North of Ireland using humour, storytelling, and DIY approaches. They playfully merge performance, protest, ancient mythology, photography, installation and video.
Array Collective are the first Northern Irish artists to win the Turner Prize – they were awarded the prize for their work “The Druthaib’s Ball”, presented in the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, Coventry (UK), in 2021.
