Belfast Exposed re-opens its doors with three showcases that are underpinned by concern and reverence for the environment. On display from June 3 to July 17, 2021.
With his exhibition ‘Aeon’, the internationally active photographer and visual artist Marcel Rickli (b. 1986 in Zurich, Switzerland) draws our attention to radioactive waste repositories, and questions how they will affect humanity for generations to come.
In the showcase ‘Street View: Yan Wang Preston’ the award-winning British-Chinese artist (b. 1976) presents his renowned bodies of work ‘Hé – River Together’, ‘Mother River’ and ‘Forest’, in which he explores the relationship between people and places. Preston works with a large-format field camera that produces enormous negatives – yielding images with an astounding resolution and faithful rendition of details.
Under the title ‘A Lightness of Touch’, the venue also presents the end-of-year degree show for the MFA Photography graduates at Ulster University, featuring works by Irish and international artists.
