Lough Fad East – a user's guide
This event will activate the work that forms Ferox at CCA Derry~Londonderry, the current solo exhibition by artist Ciarán Ó Dochartaigh.
Visitors are welcome to join Ciarán in the gallery on Saturday 2 April 2022 at 2pm–3:15pm as he interacts with the exhibition through live commentary about Lough Fad East. He will use the various tools, large circular table designed and built for the lake, sculptural objects and presentation slides to discuss the lough's ecosystem and how it has informed Ferox.
The lough has undergone a huge ecological shift in the past 15 years as a result of new species of fish and insects being introduced to its waters. This change to the lake is irreversible and solely down to human interference. The lough is also the main public water supply for the surrounding region and townlands.
