RGB Hyacinth, 2021

The RGB Hyacinth

Coming this Spring The RGB Hyacinth will be installed in Brooke Park, Derry as part of Void Offsites. Phelan’s project is a crowd-sourced sculpture made by individual participants in isolation, then assembled together to create the final artwork. This collective making process acknowledges and commemorates the COVID-19 crisis.

The sculpture will be of a hyacinth flower; using the red, green and blue colours with petals made in papier-mâché, based around a small similar work exhibited at Void Gallery as part of Phelan’s exhibition ‘echoes are always more muted’ which ran until the end of 2020.

The project is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The launch of this sculpture will take place this Spring 2021 – please check in with the link below for further details and events around the work on site.
