Michael Mulvihill, Charcoal



Artist Michael Mulvihill in conversation on charcoal, cell towers, deforestation, and site-specific drawing in the Radyo Shak at the 2015 Ghetto Biennale.

Mulvhill's Ghetto Biennale Charcoal project was staged in reaction to the social, economic, and geopolitical relationships of the charcoal trade in Haiti. The drawings were made in situ utilizing charcoal manufactured in Port-au-Prince during the production period, and used walls, pavements and any other available exterior surface to draw upon.
