Custodians is an Art Engagement project funded by Creative Ireland and Kilkenny County Council. In 2019, Rachel Burke was awarded funding to create greater community access to the arts. The project consisted of collaborating with a group of farmers, becoming an artist-in-residence in St. Lachtains N.S., holding an exhibition of final works and producing an Artbook.
During the year long project, Burke met with individual participants in their home places and gathered stories, images and photos to support her resulting artwork. Farmers collaborated with Burke on how to document their homes and farms in paintings, deciding on how they wanted to be represented. As a body of work, the compilation reveals a visual story of the Threecastles area both past and present.
