This Is Not The Place

Opening Thursday March 27th, 7-9pm 

For thisisnotashop Fiona Larkin has created a body of new work, making actions, photos, drawings and stop-gap animations which refer directly to site and look closely at the everyday experience of the commute. Using the newspaper as both material and a means to communicate she will create discreet interventions culminating in handing out a paper to LUAS commuters on Thurs March 27th. Here she focuses on the ‘in between’ nature of the commute, and examines the void between our two helical sites of aspiration and ambition, home and work. 

Since completing her MFA at the University of Ulster in 2004 Fiona Larkin has been based at Queen Street and Flaxart Studios in Belfast. She has exhibited both locally and internationally. Recent projects have included a residency with Youkobo Artspace in Tokyo, a solo show in OMAC, Belfast and a curatorial collaboration with Manchester based artist Jane Anderson Travel Agents Projects, facillitating both online and gallery based projects. She currently lectures in the University of Ulster Belfast.

5OADO is the group name of a talented mix of emerging, Dublin-based artists, currently in their 3rd year at the National College of Art and Design. Working across a variety of media and from disparate perspectives, the 5OADO cooperative’s diverse aesthetic groundings resonate a singular energy.

Between the Lines

Opening Friday March 7th, 7-9pm


In Between the Lines Particia McKenna prompts questions about the nature and technique of drawing. Using traditional and non-traditional materials including Wisteria and plastic, thisisnotashop will become a canvas of line, movement and shadow. McKenna’s work will show us a point of connection between nature and man-made materials, creating a shadow dance that meanders through and out of the building.
