Congratulations to 9 Stones artist Annabel Konig for her new residency with the Co. Waterford Arts Office. Below Annabel discusses her latest work
“I am currently working as the sea-side artist in residence for the county Waterford arts office, with Co. Arts Officer Margaret Organ.  This residency, which will run for about 8 months is an exploration of the coastal towns of the county and how the local community, landscape and villages spend their time in the off season.  I am interesting in gathering stories from the locals and making a visual diary of the sea/land during this period. The works will be shown at the Dungarvan Arts Centre during the summer (2014) and in some of the local community halls of the villages where I am working.

“I am also working on a local project which investigates farming and the farmers in my local Carlow area.   I am looking into how they use their inventiveness, ingenuity and knowledge to farm, fix and manage their livestock.  This, currently is a photographic project.”
