(re)viewing

Project Space, Golden Thread Gallery, Switch Room, 84 Great Patrick Street, Belfast BT1 2LU

(re)viewing is an exhibition of current work by Majella Clancy and is an examination of painting in an expanded space. It explores social, cultural and geographical space across representations of class, gender and race. Clancy examines her own female Irish rural history by re-using old family photographs, in particular, images that depict specific class and gendered spaces and their surrounding environment (the West of Ireland landscape)

Synthetic Aesthetics
24th August – 6th September
Leitrim Sculpture Centre Gallery, New Line, Manorhamilton, Co Leitrim

Majella Clancy, Doris Rohr, Lydia Holmes, Sinead McKeever, Nuala Gregory, Fiona Larkin, Grace McMurray

The works presented in this group-show from Belfast offer a wide range of interpretations on how cultural identity has become constructed and restrained. The title Synthetic Aesthetics refers to artificiality and hybridization, as processes of making and transforming media. Contributions take the shape of painting, sculpture, installation, drawing and video. Synthetic aesthetics makes reference to science as a dominant method and ideology of the 20th and 21st C, asking the viewer to re-imagine and to reconsider their understanding of culture. Culture informs and infiltrates every aspect of our lives and our environments. The Other of culture is presumed to be the natural, or the raw, not-fabricated. Within this the dichotomy of nature/culture, our environment, memories and certainties about a sense of presence become subjected to interrogation.
