Inis Airc is artist Pádraic Reaney’s response to the changing form of Inishark, off the west Galway coast, uniquely captures a crumbling cultural landscape as the uninhabited island, which once supported a community of over 200, returns to nature. His work fills the voids of generations past, arresting our forgetting these fishing communities, and prompting us to remember and reimagine.
