As a child of the Slieve Aughty landscape, Niamh Fahy’s intimate exploration of the geotrauma in evidence upon its rivers, fields and population becomes analogous to a detective analysing a crime scene. To document the terrain’s history and present state, Fahy’s process utilises extensive investigative research, witness accounts, exploration on foot, photography and memory, all of which provide the landscape with a much-needed voice. Fahy’s use of printmaking, an art that has a history rooted in activism, teaching and communicating through multiple iterations, presents a constructive opportunity to engage further with the “ruination” found in the Slieve Aughty landscape.
