This body of work, produced over the course of a six-month artist residency at the National Fisheries College in Greencastle, examines the contradictions and complexities of sustaining the future of a fishing industry that has been at the heart of a community for generations.
The work builds on a foundation that saw the artist train alongside trainee deckhands for over a term at the National Fisheries College. This foundation generated the kind of significant conversations within a community - in this case, a community of trainee, present and former fishermen, and those in the area of the village of Greencastle associated with the industry - that only open up within the sustained commitment of a Residency project. In particular, there were for the artist very formative and significant discussions centered on the sense of waste and fury around the practice of Discards/Bycatch imposed upon the fishing industry and the nuanced consideration of concepts such as 'limited resources' and ' sustainability'.
