Pilot Light Exchange, 10-16 August 2014
Researchers from Pavilion's Follies of Youth collective are visiting The Good Hatchery in Ireland to work with artist Ruth Lyons on the building of a limekiln. The collaboration will support the production of her new Pavilion commission that responds to the 18th Century Byram landscape. Pilot Light Exchange is an exploration of the substance of landscape with a particular focus on Limestone as a medium for understanding the historical perception of land in the 18th century and the origins of today's global industrial age.
The Good Hatchery is an experimental project based in the rural boglands of north Offaly in the Irish Midlands that sets out to challenge the norms for the production and presentation of contemporary art in Ireland today. It is run by visual artists Carl Giffney and Ruth Lyons who are committed to the support of artists in the production of high quality progressive art works. The Good Hatchery promotes an ethos of DIY and sustainability that takes advantage of the spread of information and online learning opportunities enabled by our global age. The Good Hatchery, its development and work are all closely aligned with a broad understanding of what resource is.
