Parklife: Biodiversity in Contemporary Irish Art presents the work of Irish artists who consider the biodiversity of the world around us, looking at how different forms of life thrive in the urban realm as well as in more remote environments. The selected works range from detailed drawings of the various species of animals that make their home on the University College Cork campus to photographic studies of birds and plants that bring contemporary resonance to the pioneering work of Karl Blossfeldt on display in our Sisk gallery. The exhibition features a series of paintings of the Scots Pine, one of Ireland’s three native coniferous trees, as well as research investigations into the ways in which communities are conserving seeds to protect food crops for future generations. Parklife includes two new commissions from artists Amber Broughton and Peter Nash who were invited to engage with UCC Green Campus and Cork University Business School to create new works for the UCC Art Collection that focus on biodiversity and sustainability.
