‘Heirloom’ Exhibition by Rachel Doolin to Open at LHQ Gallery, Cork County Hall

Cork County Council is delighted to host ‘Heirloom’, an installation of new works created by artist Rachel Doolin opening on Thursday 30th of March in the LHQ Gallery, Cork County Hall.

‘Heirloom’ presents a series of visual, installation and digital based works that celebrates the ‘profundity of seeds’ by exploring the human thread that articulates the connection between our past, present and future. 

The works manifest from a culmination of research undertaken during an arctic based residency programme and has been subsequently informed by a creative partnership with Irish Seed Savers Association. Rachel has previously spent two years as an artist in residence with Irish Seed Savers Association, Ireland’s only public seed bank, which curates over 600 non-commercially available varieties of seed.
