Faoi Rún is a series of site-specific artworks set on the Ros Muc peninsula tracing the interplay between landscape, climate and culture. Inis Mór artist Seán Ó Flaithearta’s Drowned Sky portraits pay homage to Ros Muc personages. Composed of bog and weather it echoes the patterns of seasonal turloughs, referencing the ingenuity of traditional ways of working within and with the natural landscape.

Merging the physical and virtual landscapes, digital media artist Paul Kinsella explores the simultaneous alternatives of Ros Muc’s past, present and future to highlight the tension between the seeming permanence and mutability of place.

Note: Be aware that some of the sites have no vehicular access and are on rough terrain, walking shoes recommended.
