hɛkəl~s (heckles) an exhibition of work by visual artists Nollaig Molloy and Ruth Kerr.
'Both Nollaig and Ruth interrogate assumptions made about the world we live in through their art practice. Both artists employ a similar artistic method – they create their work through researching and actively experimenting with materials querying human perception.'
The work specific to the exhibition hɛkəl~s is a series in response to time spent in Ferrycarrig, Co. Wexford, constructing a pedal-run pole lathe with fifth generation woodwright Eoin Donnelly. The work references types of making and processes, focusing on the skill and the craft of woodturning while also documenting the structural environment of a crannóg in Wexford where the artist resided for period of constructing the pole lathe. The resulting pieces stem from being a maker and an interest in the fading of generational transmission of craft based skills.
