Susan MacWilliam’s IC ITE OID was an audio and sculptural work at the Franciscan Friary, interweaving Aldous Huxley’s seminal 1954 novel The Doors of Perception with accounts of the Limerick Meteorite Fall of 1813, inducing a psychedelic cosmic sensation to Askeaton’s famous ruin.

Steve Maher’s site-orientated conceptualism resulted in three distinct presentations: a miniature ghost estate appears on the edge of the four roads, excerpts from local literary sources flash across Supervalu’s LED scrolling sign, while at Cagney’s Bar a video investigated the illegal distilling and procurement of Poitin alcohol in the Askeaton area.

Jorge Satorre’s drawings were located in the tunnel of Askeaton’s New Bridge. Working in an anthropological approach and in collaboration with local resident. Anita Guinane, he gathered aural accounts of previous artworks made in Askeaton, producing a series of drawings that perform an active recollection and as a form of unauthorised folklore for the status of contemporary art in the region.

Amanda Rice’s derives around Aughinish Island led her to finding out about the disappearance of several triangulation stations, objects placed in the land to establish concise mapping co-ordinates. After experiencing her own process of drift and walking in the landscape, Amanda made a structure reassembling a ‘trig’. Rather than being stationary, instead it moves from locations at Poulaweala Creek, to a photograph in a display case in the East Square, to another location in a field near the town centre.

Mike Cooter’s multi-directional project investigates the nature of objects. In Mussel Mind (Loaded Die), his ingredients include an artefact from the Hunt Museum, reconstructions of a Gerrit Rietweld lamp and an Eileen Gray table, mussels, hotplates, and industrial printing techniques that converge together in several rooms on Church Street. Mike worked closely with System Label when in Askeaton.
