INTERZONE @ Catalyst Arts, Belfast

24th May – 5th July 2018

Barry Cullen | Jonny McEwen  | Una Monaghan | Saul Rayson  | Susannah Stark

Interzone brings together a group of internationally prominent and emergent artists whose approaches to their individual art practices embrace sound, installation and visual components. The project is a six week conversation, the gallery re-imagined as liminal land between borders, playing host to a sustained exploration of the multi-faceted, complex, mutually invigorating relationships possible across visual and sonic art practices and rejecting outmoded separation between disciplines within contemporary art. Codes, glitches and loops permeate the assembled constituents of the exhibition, instigating a shifting inter-connection between what is seen and heard. The title references both the International Zone setting of William S Burroughs taboo breaking 1959 novel Naked Lunch and the mysterious, dreamlike “Zone” in Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 film Stalker.

Interzone will be complemented by a series of live Sonic Art performances on the opening night and to coincide with June and July Late Night Art Belfast.

Hear Yous – Same Place @ Sonorities 2018

In the summer of 2017 a group of artists based in Belfast formed UMBRELLA. The group is a collective that aims to promote arts practices related to sound, listening and aural environments. Meeting monthly at the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Queen’s University Belfast, the group seeks to collaborate on new works and present public events that feature aurally-engaged artworks.

The latest work/works from the group is ‘Same Place‘ which will be exhibited at the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) as part of Sonorities 2018.
