Happy to have a piece in this fine show which is to be held in both 126 Gallery in Galway and The Western Carolina University (WCU) Fine Art Museum, USA, opening at 7pm Galway this eve.
Very grateful to be awarded residency leading to solo exhibition at Leitrim Sculpture Centre 2017
I am delighted to be awarded artist in residence in Krems Austria for the month of November; it is the second oldest city in Austria, on the immense river Danube in the baroque world heritage site of the Wachau region, which is so inspiration at this time of year with the burnt leaves.
Delighted to have my sound work featured again this week on RTE Lyric FMs new and experimental music show NOVA 7th August 2016, under my pseudonym 'ɗʉɭʈ'. Thank you to Bernard Clarke the presenter and curator for his ongoing interest and support for my sonic workings.

WormWorm [minor] is a site-specific installation by Sarah Lundy, composed of various spatial interventions based simply on the notion of baseness.
“Worm will I ever get born?” [Samuel Beckett, The Unnamable, 1953]
Beckett’s character Worm has served as inspiration for this exhibition. Effectively outlined as an actual worm in all its tragic basic incarnation, Worm is also fundamentally a metaphor and we are all Worm; Simultaneously consumer and compost, exiled in each other, inert in activity and dumb in the deluge of the decaying world. Ignorant and ever-infantile, despite our vain progress we remain in essence primordial as an insect.
This body of work endeavors to present pared-down pieces that are elemental and plain as possible, extending Lundy’s’ meditations on the macabre with her stark minimalist aesthetic and examination of the esoteric role of the raw object.
Cork Films Centers’ site on the old Gunpowder Mills has offered a sympathetic space for the shows ethos owing to the locations history as engine of dust and destruction.
These are the minor works. Not so much nebulous as nothingness. There is at once an active acknowledgement of their futility as well as their essential value in imparting that very ideology.
