Cora Cummin’s work considers topologies of retreat and isolation – landscapes one might want to either escape to or flee from. Recent work has pondered the aesthetic, ergonomic and psychological appeal of golf courses; civic horticulture, lighthouses; roundabouts, islands, holiday destinations, and the digital spaces of computer games and other non-spaces.

The artist works across a number of mediums – printmaking, video, sculpture and publications. While an associate TBG+S member Cummins hosted and curated ‘What Hiver’ (April 2009) a group exhibition; and worked on two solo exhibitions – “Retreat’ (Dunamaise Art Centre Dec 2009) and ‘Himmel und Holle’ (Galway Arts Centre Aug 2010).

Previous exhibitions include ‘Means of Escape' (The Lab, Dublin April 2008); 'A Thousand Islands in the Sea' (The Dock, Carrick-on-Shannon July 2006); 'Someplace Somewhere' (2004);'Halved Hill' (2002); 'Various Fields' (2000) Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, Dublin.
