Celestial Salt


The Good Hatchery. Compiled and produced by Carl Giffney and Ruth E Lyons. Featuring work by artists: Mark Clare; Alex Conway; Anita Delaney & Doreen Kennedy; Barbara Knezevic and Ben Mullen


Celestial Salt is a visual art project that saw six artists bring an artwork that was originally created and exhibited in an art context to the rural environment surrounding The Good Hatchery in December 2009. This publication contains documentation of the artists work alongside six pieces of writing. Writers were invited from various backgrounds and paired with one of the artworks. The writers were asked not to describe the works but rather to take the artwork as inspiration for their own creative output.
