Every Spring Lismore Castle Arts runs the project A Space for Lismore, which seeks to engage directly with the local community in Lismore. In 2018 we invited Juneau Projects (Phil Duckworth and Ben Sadler) to develop a collaborative print project with members of the Lismore community to produce a series of linocut illustrations to be included in a publication.

The starting point for the project was David Nash’s work ‘Three Lismore Columns’ in the lower gardens at Lismore Castle. They wrote a short science fiction style text that considered the sculpture from the perspective of the flora and fauna that encounter it: a fly landing on it, a mushroom growing next to it, a lichen spreading slowly on its surface.

The project made up one half of a two part publication exploring the similarities between Lismore and rural Vermont, USA, working in collaboration with Two Chairs curatorial practice. The publication examines the placement David Nash sculptures in both landscapes.
