Coming to the SOIL Residency, I held the seed of an idea looking at soils and their microbial
life in a context of communication. This was originally to be explored in a kinetic, time-lapse
effect of creating environment through which growth and mould development could occur.
Through-out my time here, however, the idea for this new installation has developed and
continues to do so. Currently (in my second week of residency), I am looking at the sounds
created themselves at a microbial level.
The development of this new body of work comes from a desire to consider the
microscopic, and to bare witness in this time to these legions of unseen forces. Which while
they appear to be microscopic, prove in their ability and climatic scope to be in fact
Working with sound as a sculptural devise is of specific. Playing with themes of
communication and connection, the work wishes to evoke an other than human sound,
available out of the usual human audio bounds.
Annie Hogg is a visual artist based in Co. Tipperary. She works with pigments and found
objects foraged from all elements of the landscape, often charring found objects from the
natural world as a votive action to create paint and sculpture. Throughout her practice she
utilises plants, soils and stones, shells and found bones.
Her work gravitates around the themes of solastalgia, ecopsychology and transformation.
After graduating in 2002 with a BA in sculpture from Aki College of Art in The Netherlands,
she worked and lived on environmental protest camps and learned organic horticulture.
Returning to a creative practice in recent years has led to the culmination of these lived
experiences through themes and materials.
Awards and support have been received from the Arts Council of Ireland, Irish Hospice
Foundation, Tipperary County Council Arts Office and South Tipperary Arts Centre.
