The National Space Centre (NSC) in partnership with Greywood Arts will be hosting an exhibition by Swedish sculpture and sound artist Nicklas Lundberg, from Friday 03 December through Sunday 05 December. Lundberg is the Artist in Residence at Greywood, examining waste produced by the acceleration of space technology as part of Ireland’s first Space Waste residency. The residency is supported by the Cork County Council Arts Office.

Lungberg’s art is centred around sculptural sound works, often with kinetic and interactive elements. The residency will incorporate sounds generated using the NSC’s iconic 32-metre dish.

The Space Waste project also incorporates an educational programme, delivered through November by artist Scott Gorham. The resulting collaborative works of students from Gaelscoil Mhainistir Na Corann, Kyle NS, St. Fergal’s NS, and the Greywood Arts Youth Group will also be on display.

Both students and visitors will have the opportunity to tour the National Space Centre on this rare occasion when it is open to the public.
