Maitiú Mac Cártaigh
My current practice is concerned with constructing an alternative agricultural space, which is derived from the rural landscape and decaying architecture of Ireland. My place within this landscape is uneasy as I grew up as the eldest or ‘right son’ on a farm but never inherited due to fire. I also exist outside the heteronormative ideal of agriculture life. I examine the ideas of labour, landownership, male-dominance, agriculture and Queerness. As the Farm Labourer, I actively engage with a process of making akin to systems of labour and production. My work is presented as an expanded print-based practise with a central focus on the performative act of making. The printing moment is the fulcrum to my practise, employing an auto-ethnomethodology.
