Collaboration with Butler House, Kilkenny

In 2019 Blackstack Studio was approached the Kilkenny Civic Trust to create work inspired by the historic house and gardens of Butler House, formerly the Dower House for Kilkenny Castle.

My 4 colour screenprint Cá bhfuil mo cheann? Where is my head? Was exhibited as part of the Alternative Kilkenny Arts Festival.

I chose to illustrate a story connected with Nelson’s Pillar. Nelson’s head was stolen by a group of NCAD students. The stolen head was headline news; it even made an appearance on stage with the Dubliners, in the Olympia Theatre, Dublin. Angelina felt this story’s connection with Art needed to be restored, she chose to illustrate with a 4 colour screen print. A colour popping process made famous in the creative swinging sixties when the deed was done.
