Unsettlement | Paul Moore (nonarnia.com)
This exhibition is the latest outcome of the artist Paul Moore’s ongoing #nonarnia project. This Belfast-focused project critiques the adoption of fantastic cultural icons as signifiers of the gentrification processes.
For ‘Unsettlement’ Moore, a multidisciplinary Belfast-based artist, took over Gallery 1 of Platform Arts Belfast in July 2017 to create a No-Narnia No-Fantasy artistic comment to these administration-directed processes in Belfast.
The Unsettlement accompanying text by Dorothy Hunter is available on PARS – the Platform Arts Resource Space publication website.
Colour – Paint – Painting (Mini Site)
Colour – Paint – Painting is a collaborative exhibition by the artists Helen Mac Mahon, Kate O’Shea, and Elad Rosen and curated by Moran Been-noon, as part of the Platform – TACTIC curatorial exchange. Each artist brings to this project their unique practice and their way of interpreting the concepts of painting as a method, paint and material, and the importance of light in visual art and the way it engages with its audience.
The three artists worked in their studios and in the gallery, developing the space as a collaborative piece as part of the preparatory process, and during the run of the exhibition. The work included layers of light, colour, paint, and print, involved a wide range of materials and methods, and formed an eclectic comment on contemporary painting and installation practices.
Little Piece (Mini Site)
Little Piece is a title that follows “Pezzettino”, a book by Leo Lionni. In the book a little piece searches what it is part of, and eventually discovers that it is “itself”, an individual that is complex in its own. In this group exhibition the artists continue their work from the 2012 exhibition “Stories to Wake Up To”, focusing on a sense of being part – part of society, part of a community, being treated as a part and considered as an individual.

The 1st MA Thesis Show at National Media College. The title comes from this quote: “Life is not about significant details, illuminated a flash, fixed forever. Photographs are.” ― Susan Sontag
In their work, the students were not making their assertions about life, but about the manner in which visual art explores and represents issues of perception, identity, and community.
