Let the Dead Leaves Fall:
Continues: 2 December 2017 - 24 January 2018
Miguel Martin's new work examines societal attitudes surrounding contemporary mindfulness and its various associations to practices of occultism. The title of the exhibition is adapted from a quote by the 13th century Persian poet and mystic Rumi, who originally wrote, 'be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop', alluding to ideas of letting go and thereby submitting to higher transcendental states of consciousness. Drawing aesthetic influences from minimalism and still life, the tone of the exhibition is softly sinister and includes video, installation and sculptural components.

McKeever's practice is process led. She exploits the possibilities of found industrial and domestic materials, examining the balance between materiality, form and decorative surfaces. McKeever's new work inhabits and investigates boundaries, edges and awkward spaces, her sculptural objects are often found in corners or unexpected places such as ceilings, windows and corners. The play of light and shadow are important to the artist, her pieces creating strips of light through shadow and reflection, often edged with colour, these playful bands promote investigation of spatial occupation and application, creating presence.
A Free Bus will run between Belfast and Portadown on the evening of the opening. Leaves Belfast from Golden Thread Gallery at 6.45pm. Returns from Portadown at 9pm.
