Nemeton is an installation of reverential artefacts by Marie Brett (artist) and John McHarg (art therapist) on view from 11 June – 13 July 2012 in St Mary’s Collegiate Church, Youghal. The artwork Nemeton is the most recent development of Marie and Johns ongoing creative collaboration exploring their respective art/health practices and allied interest in notions of absence.

The artefacts presented in St Mary’s Collegiate Church have been drawn from creative gifts made by individuals during the Reverie:Locating Absence intervention, staged by Marie and John as part of Cork Institute of Technology’s art therapy summer school 2011.

The artefacts are in many cases small and intimate and the artists would like to acknowledge the participation of these anonymous donors, and are pleased to be able to present this new work within St Mary’s reflective and sacred space.
