2011-12

Inspired by the work created during the Floating Islands project, Archipelago is a study of islands as collective units, both individual and collaborative.

While the work included art installations, it was foreshadowed by the formation of a short-lived artist collective, 'Stranded Artists', with whom I organised an exhibition in Iceland and developed some new connections.

Islands are separated forms adrift from one another. But all are interconnected, by sea or by sky, by conversation or by communication.

This project was part-funded by funded by Sligo Arts Office and the early works were made on residency at Nes International Artist Residency, Skagaströnd, Iceland.
