Creation Date



Systems Failure

A solo exhibition of new work by Anna Macleod developed in conversation with curator Liz Burns.

The Dock, Carrick on Shannon, Co Leitrim. Ireland. 12th February – 17th April 2010.

The works for the exhibition Systems Failure include drawings, prints and small constructions that examine the delicate balance that exists between need and aspects of failure rooted in the relationship between humanity and land use. The work seeks to question the relationship between scientific and technological interventions into eco systems and the alienation of the individual from the environmental consequences of climate change.

Water is the emotive tool used here to explore the fragile ecologies between source and consumption.

The exhibition was accompanied by a text by Fiona Fullam, ‘Failure of Systems’ available for download from
