Lily O’Shea (b. 1997) is an artist and writer based in Cork concerned with political questions surrounding the contemporary labourer. Slow Puncture is a series of reflections on precarious labour and the experience of burnout. Through live performance, sculpture and text, this work intends to expand on the materiality of precarity while foregrounding various anxieties endured by the modern-day worker.

Sample-Studios presents ‘In Habitat, In Transition’, a solo exhibition by Deirdre Frost in St. Luke’s Crypt, the recipient of the Sample-Studios Graduate Artist Residency 2020/21. Deirdre’s work is rooted in a phenomenological investigation into the experience of the individual in a man-made environment and their relation to the natural through this prism.
Join us in St. Luke’s Crypt this Culture Night to view her new installation entitled Áitreabh (Habitation), made of birch panels, oil and acrylic paint, with a musical response composed by Paul Frost and recorded by Mia Cooper, violin (Leader RTÉ Concert Orchestra, Esposito Quartet). Sanitised headphones provided or BYO. This exhibition ‘trail’ takes place in two venues across the city, St. Lukes Crypt with Sample-Studios and Studio 12 with Backwater Artists Group, Wandesford Quay.
