This workshop focuses on the artists' exhibition and publication in 2020, What remains of this place?. During the November 2020 lockdown, sculptures and paintings were temporarily installed within their 5km radius of East Wall and Docklands Dublin. The final exhibition was released over one week through the social media platform, Instagram.
