One day, one man, one bog

An gcloisean tú an cuinas

TURF takes an audience on a visual and emotional journey, where the narrative resonates with echoes of tradition and reality. Situated somewhere deep within the Irish soul, it tells the story of one life but many selves.  TURF searches for the truth in a hidden landscape. Sculpture, Installation, Performance, it explores not how to hold the TURF but how the TURF takes a hold of you. At the mercy of nature, the block waits to cut, to spread, to foot, when it moves it lives.

I was transported into his world of turf, a landscape that Frank invokes beautifully in this creation. I loved the intensity of the piece, its sharpness and its simplicity”. Michael Keegan Dolan
