Half Way To Falling is a collaborative and collective response to Common Ground’s The Just City – Counter Narrative Neighbourhood Residency Award 2020 – 2021. This exhibition presents a series of collaborative printworks, sculptural work, a film piece and responses by The Just City Collective. This exhibition commences Sample-Studios’ TACTIC Visual Arts Programme 2021 programme, which marks its 10th anniversary.
Common Ground awarded Kate O’ Shea the Just City - Counter Narrative Neighbourhood Residency Award in March 2020, when Ireland entered its first period of lockdown. In April 2020, Kate O’ Shea established an online reading group of international activists, community workers, artists and academics from eight cities around the world. This has evolved into The Just City Collective. Half Way To Falling represents collective energy and is immersive in nature - the internal structure of The Lord Mayor’s Pavilion will be wrapped with large scale collaborative prints made by The Just City Reading Collective and sculptural work by HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH? collaborators will inhabit the space. This exhibition will also premiere the first short film of The Just City Residency.
