Ends 01 December 2022

PS² is delighted to announce the next project as part of Cecelia Graham's and Grace Jackson’s curatorial residency: Queer na nÓg, a fantasy collaboration project devised by artist collective  Bog Cottage, and an invitation to create and commune with fellow makers.

Curators Grace Jackson and Cecelia Graham approached Bog Cottage with a simple concept: ‘We have a space in PS² and we want to make it available for artists to experiment - what would you make if you had the space to make it?’

Bog Cottage immediately recalled how the funniest part of their last show was not making all the work for it, but making two neon trees to border the entrance, which were created in 3 days while listening to music and eating pizza.

Artists Orla Mar and Roberta Murray want to share this vibe, and are inviting artists, makers, DIYers, and crafters to come and join them in building a fantasy woods of queer desire and unexpected turns.

About the curators

This is the third project as part of Cecelia Graham and Grace Jackson’s yearlong collaborative curatorial residency at PS². Throughout the residency, the duo have developed a mode of working that aims to challenge curatorial intentions that centre around strict outcomes. Instead, Cecelia and Grace have created a space for artists to test ideas or return to work considered unresolved. The projects below have been curated by the curatorial duo:
1- Mark Buckeridge- Handycam Gifts
2- Bog Cottage
3- Tara McGinn- A Change in the Cells
4- Christopher Steenson, June 2023
