Platform Arts Belfast Upcoming Exhibitions: Space and Time and Making Scenes
Gallery 1, Erin Hagan: Space and Time
Erin Hagan’s work is expressionistic in nature, and connects to a sense of mystery and spiritual complexity. She maintains a material process within her work without having preconceived ideas of what the outcome will be. This process offers a sense of encountering, finding or revealing.
Hagan’s work ranges from painting and drawing to installation and sculptural aspects. Space in Time will include her most recent works.
Gallery 2, Rachel Rankin: Making Scenes
In gallery 2 we have our graduate resident show by Rachel Rankin. Her work explores and re-writes narratives relating to her sense of self, often in contrast to her idea of an image of Utopia. Through the use of video and performance, an autobiographical narrative is created, using metaphor and anecdote. The focus is often on perceptions of the artist’s body as a female one, and associations of woman as maternal, sexual and domestic figures. Rankin, in making work, creates acts in time to protect the ideas that sit very old within her. Through her work, she is either filling up or emptying out herself in some way. She allows hidden things to leak out.
