Maria McKinney works in sculpture, photography and film to investigate agricultural practices and the science that informs various methods of food production as well as the experiences of the land workers. For this new body of work, commissioned by Wexford County Council and on show in its offices, McKinney exhibits a series of new sculptures inspired by the agrarian practices and pastoral traditions of six Wexford farms. She draws on a range of materials – including plastics, jute rope and organic wool – as well as incorporating an additional photographic element to the installation.
