Intro Text 

Opening from 11 December, On Steady Ground/Unsteady Ground, is a collaborative exhibition by artists Cora Cummins and Saoirse Higgins, awardees of a Visual Art Commission from Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, funded by the Arts Council.  Featuring new work in etching, video, photography and sculpture, the exhibition connects the artists’ parallel research interests in environment and landscape change and reflections on losing what seemed permanent.

Residents of the Dún Laoghaire area, Cora and Saoirse have drawn their research and conversations locally from the surrounding landscape and history, and by looking globally towards Everest and the remote island of Papa Westray, one of the most northerly islands in the Orkney Islands Archipelago. In so doing, they set out to create a dialogue between the various levels and stages of experiencing both environmental change and loss, and personal change and loss.

The exhibition continues until Sunday 13 March 2022 at the Municipal Gallery, dlr Lexicon, Dún Laoghaire.
