The Peatlands Immersive Installation

Discover the wonders of the bog. 

The Peatlands Immersive Installation explores the ecological treasures that are the peatlands and wetlands of Ireland and amplifies the extraordinary species found within.  The installation combines animated paintings, photography, field recordings, sound sculpture and video into a transmedia essay, narrated through the voice of the natural and built worlds. 

The installation features soundscapes and field recordings by Lisa Dowling Scott and stunning works by nature photographer Tina Claffey and visual artist Kathrine Geoghegan.  Paola Catizone brings performance art to the exhibition in the form of movement, meditation and audience participation.  Charleen Hurtubise is a contributing artist, curator and creative producer.  Creative engineer, Fergus O’Hagan brings all the elements together to create the stunning experience that is The Peatlands.

The Peatlands exhibition is on from the 25th July - 25th August at the Gallery in Tuar Ard Art Centre, Moate, Co. Westmeath.  The Gallery is open Monday-Saturday, 9am-5pm.  Entrance is Free.
