Baboró at Home

Baboró at Home

November 18, 2020

While the festival is now over, you can still enjoy some of the performances and workshops from home. And with thanks to artist Jennifer Cunningham, we are are pleased to present an additional workshop, Box Habitats.

Box Habitats Workshop

Jennifer Cunningham | New Workshop

Artist Jennifer Cunningham offers an online version of her 2019 Baboró workshop, Box Habitats. In the short video, Jennifer guides you through making your own fantastic habitat out of items found around your home. Join her in building a magical, miniature world and feel free to create your own creatures to populate your unique habitat.

Online Exhibition

Jojo Hynes | From 2020 Festival

We are so happy to offer an online tour of Jojo Hynes's remarkable exhibition, She Crashes In and Fizzles Out. Join Joanna McGlynn as she speaks with Jojo about the process behind the work and walks you through the exhibition inspired by the stories of female water deities throughout the world, revered goddesses who crashed in and fizzled out of our collective memory like water lapping the shore.

Displayed alongside the work of Jojo is work by young artists who took part in online workshops facilitated by Jojo during Cruinniú na nÓg, Galway earlier this year. The children invented their own new myths about their locality and from these have manifested artworks surrounding these stories.

Young Artists: Annalysse Nally, Dearbhla Murphy, Gráinne Ní Bhroin, Leah O’Driscoll, Méabh Mahon, Millie Ross, Róise Hayes. Curated by: Rita McMahon & Maeve Mulrennan Art Technicians: Stephen Cunniffe and David Finn
