Axis Exchange

Axis Artist Exchange (2023)

In March and April 2023, we collaborated with KCAT and Trasna Productions (Kilkenny, Republic of Ireland), visiting each other in an artist exchange.  We met new friends, learned about each other, and created artwork together. 

Artists and staff from the organisations visited each other’s towns and studios.  We visited cultural venues in the different towns. We shared the artwork we created and talked to each other about the projects we are currently working on, and our creative practices. We made artwork together inspired by meeting each other, and by the places we had visited and seen on our travels. 

We created a new large-scale piece of artwork together, working with artist Saturio Alonso at the Gasworks gallery in Callan.  We created a publication, and with film-maker Patrick Bramley we documented our visits (see film, above).

The artists, staff and organisations were inspired by what they saw and what they learned from each other, to think differently and better about the way that we do things. 

The artists involved in the exchange were: Alfie Fox, Brianna Hurley, Diana Chambers, Fintin Kelly, Liam Hirst, Ria Lake, and Stephen Harvey. 

We would like to thank the British Council for their generous support of this project.
