Bring the Mind Home
- Artlink Members Show 2021
ALMOST 50 artists from 13
counties across the island of Ireland and Canada
responded to the theme ‘Turas‘ (journey) for the annual
Artlink Members Show. Forty wall based artworks, eight
sculptures and three films make up this year's
exhibition 'Bring the Mind Home', curated by Kaitlynn
Artlink are delighted to be able to once again welcome
visitors to the gallery at Fort Dunree and to make the
most of this opportunity they will be offering guided
tours of the exhibition.
Bring the Mind Home is on from 3rd June
to 26th June daily from 10am-4pm at Fort Dunree.
Kaitlynn said: “This
exhibition asked the members to look at the journeys
they've made over the past year - journeys that
inevitably were not the ones they had planned on taking.
We have all become intimately acquainted with our
immediate 5 km radius, and we've had the chance to
become even more intimately acquainted with our own
minds. These pieces speak to those journeys - they speak
to the meaning we have crafted while confined within our
locales, perhaps while longing to be somewhere else, and
always in the company of ourselves.
They speak to ritual, connection, reflection, and
resilience. It was a delight to be able to view these
artist's journeys through their work, and by so doing,
reflect on my own - and I believe the viewers can look
forward to doing the same”.
'Bring the Mind Home' is on from Thursday, 3rd June to
Saturday, 26th June daily from 10am-4pm at the Saldanha
Gallery, Fort Dunree, Buncrana.
