What’s new with HIVE?
Retreat to Stone, Stone in Retreat (2021)
Visual artist, and member of HIVE Choir, Nollaig Molloy has recently produced video work Retreat to Stone, Stone in Retreat for Catalyst Arts as part of their Graduate Award Show 2020. The video work is an audiovisual exploration of three sites in Nollaig’s rural locality, with a vocal score performed by HIVE Choir.
For the vocal score, fragments of language within legislation pertaining to the protection of these sites have been rearranged with other formal texts to compose a vocal response. The work offers a range of perspectives that Molloy explores by juxtaposing digital mapping systems against recordings that frame the sensitivity of basic human interactions with nature.
