Visions of an Unsettled Earth’ is an exhibition that explores ideas of temporality, transience and transformation in the environment. It brings together new and recent works made by the Cork County-based artists Debbie Godsell, Fiona Kelly and Sarah O’Flaherty.

Godsell, Kelly and O’Flaherty use media as varied as print, sculpture and photography. Through images and materials, they refer to landscape as a continuous collaboration or negotiation between nature and human interaction.

Godsell, Kelly and O’Flaherty understand landscape as a three-dimensional shared reality, which they examine through themes of land use – for example the cyclical process of creation and disintegration of matter. The artists put forward thoughts on this three-dimensional shared reality, ‘a palimpsest of what has gone before, to reveal what persists or survives as well as to propose new vital forms’, as they state.
