Marie Brett and John McHarg worked collaboratively for 18 months on an arts and health project called On the Edge of My Sky in partnership with Sirius Arts Centre, Crawford College of Art, Cork County Arts Office and the HSE which enabled critical research of their respective practices: artist & art therapist. Through dialogue & reflection, they interrogated these practices; their juxtaposition, intersections, similarities and differences when working in participatory contexts which resulted in a body of findings presented through lectures/talks entitled 2 Voices. After a year, they realised the need to step back into the critical landscape of making art and developed a new body of experimental artwork informed by this experience of a dialogue in opposition, their findings and associated theory. The site specific installation A Quickening was the outcome of this collaborative work which was on display in The Fenton Gallery, Cork from 6-13 July 2010. The project was supported by The Arts Council, Cork City Council Arts Office & Cork Institute of Technology. This video is a record of different stages of the works progress
