The Domestic Godless


Domestic Godless (artists Irene Murphy, Mick O’Shea and Stephen Brandes), are an absurdist food/art collective based in County Cork, Ireland. Established in 2003, it has been their mission to explore the potential of food (its taste, its presentation, its history and its cultural values) as a vehicle for irreverent artistic endeavour and experimentation.
