guac Aughty Projects

Weed or Knotweed? explores the topography of the Aughty area, native birds, folk lore, and the invasive Japanese Knotweed plant, through delicate watercolours.


It was commissioned as part of the Aughty Public Art Projects by Galway County Council Arts Office and supported by The Arts Council of Ireland, GUAC, Clare County Arts Office and Slógadh Aughty.

The Aughty area covers north east Clare and South east Galway. The project was curated by Dr Áine Phillips, Head of Sculpture at the Burren College of Art.


Weed or Knotweed? also involved a participatory project where the public were invited to record the advantages and disadvantages of travel.

These postcards have since been compiled into a book.
