Ordinary objects collected through daily life and interpersonal communication are transformed into a spatial installation. Numerous small installations reflect the transient nature of memory and emotional awareness. Its framework makes for an intimate exchange, whereby atmosphere, open-ended possible narratives and a kind of everyday mise-en-scene are built and shared between artist and visitor. Join us for ‘Art and Breakfast Belfast’ every Friday during the project. Friday 9 May: Breakfast will be served from 10.30am – 12.30pm Friday 16 May: Breakfast will be served from 10.30am – 12.30pm Friday 23 May: Breakfast will be served from 10.30am – 12.30pm Places are limited and booking is advised. http://goldenthreadgallery.co.uk/ All Welcome.
