Road Studios, Liverpool / Backwater Artists Group Studio Exchange

Eimear Kavanagh / Éilis ní Fhaoláin

September 2016


Artists Eimear Kavanagh and Éilis ní Fhaoláin will soon embark on a month long residency exchange between Road Studios, Liverpool and Backwater Artists Group. Sharing an interest in the environment, urban and rural, and how it reflects and impacts on all that dwells within it, they see the month long residency as visual fact finding mission which will inform their work and culminate in a vibrant pop up show at Road Studios.

Celebrating 2016’s Liverpool Biennial, Road Studios has curated a programme of six “episodes,” welcoming a diversity of artists currently practicing in Liverpool. In Episode 5: Sojour(nal), Eimear and Éilis take their studio exchange as the beginning of a storyline by artists at both studios. The transitory nature of the exchange will be reflected in the exhibition, Sojour(nal) (29th September – 1st October, Opening night Thursday 29th September 6-9pm).
