Take some Swedish pine board, drill 1261 holes in its face, stuff them full of hand painted golf tees in a 30mm three dimensional grid and see if it winces. Using the Ikea RAST 3 drawer cabinet and 1500 bamboo golf tees from Aldi we created this flat pack Hellraiser.

The brief was the flat pack itself and the March 26th deadline.

This exhibition was a co-production between the Illustrators’ Guild of Ireland and South Studios with a tremendous line up of illustrators and other creatives including Gaetan Billault, Paula, McAntee, Kevin McSherry, Aisling Farinella, Rich Gilligan, Cliona O’Flaherty, Chris Judge, Steve Simpson, Una Gildea, Brian Coldrick, Conor & David, Fintan Taite, Dara NiBheachain, Studioseventyseven Photography, Rossi McAuley, Rory McCormick,  Joven Kerekes, Padhraig Nolan, thirtythreetrees, David Rooney, Brian Gallagher, Adrienne Geoghegan, Roger O’Reilly and Steve Doogan.

In an interesting twist the illustrators completed their entire piece in the exhibition space on the day of the show working from 8am (not a lot was going on at this stage in fairness) to 6.45pm when we cleaned the floor, opened the door and let the show begin!

You can see images of all the other Drawers here.

We’re grateful to Rich Gilligan and Diarmaid Frain for the use of the photographs of our piece “Libertees 1261.03.10”.
