Artist duo Yvonne McGuinness and Rhona Byrne’s project The Central Field is a temporary Live Land Artwork . Commissioned by South Dublin County Council In Context In Our Time
The project is based on a site which is due to become the ‘commercial or district town centre’ of Adamstown. Adamstown is a suburban ‘new town’ in South County Dublin which has been in development since 2005.
The Central Field project is responding to this particular site and context during its interim phase of development. Drawing on the idea of an amphitheatre, over a three month period we produced a series of live and immediate responses, events, performances, interventions, gatherings and activities, collaborating with residents, local schools and community groups. To explore concepts of transition and potential, land use, private and public ownership, intrinsic value, materiality, responsibility and our individual and collective agency.
