Scattered around the world, Nua Collective are a group of professional visual artists that collaborate together to create, share and support one another in their journey as artists. BLACKOUT marks our first physical exhibition. Featuring 13 artists, this exhibition presents a unique series of lino prints that, in their creation and processing, have travelled the globe. Together, we make an enquiry about our climate catastrophe and the energy crisis that we face once again.

The climate-related events of this past summer have brought a stark realisation to us as artists and viewers, forcing us to confront the harsh realities of humankind’s impact on the planet. This series of work serves as a poignant reminder of the blackout we experience regarding the urgent need to address the problems that contribute to a steadily warming planet and the dire consequences that result.

THE BLACKOUT PROCESS
Starting with discussions and sharing, like all concepts explored by Nua Collective, we digitally came together to understand and consider the theories and ideas that formed BLACKOUT.
Independently, each artist created their works using various materials, such as painting, photography, pastel, and other mixed media. Digitally rendered, the final pieces were sent to Scotland, where Nua Artist Robert Jackson laser cut negatives of these artworks and using a 19th-century, traditional Columbian printing press, created unique editions that form the BLACKOUT exhibition.
The 13 featured artworks are 310x250mm in size and are packed in our tour box. Touring artworks of this size means they can be exhibited in a variety of spaces from traditional galleries to coffee shops, libraries, and public spaces. With members from our collective situated all over the world we plan to tour this exhibition internationally.
As part of our growing list of publications, the BLACKOUT collection will be accompanied by our latest coffee table book featuring beautiful renders of the original artworks aside narratives composed by our Nua Collective artists. If you donate more than €50, we will send you a copy of our first edition.
