PS², Spencer House, 69 Royal Avenue, , Belfast
The exhibition 'Dispersed Presence’ is a result of ‘Transforming Long Kesh/Maze’, a collaborative social sculpture by artists Martin Krenn and Aisling O’Beirn, exploring the future of the Maze/Long Kesh prison site beyond its current state of limbo. The former prison has both a physical presence and conceptual importance. Indecision about its future at government level says much about the political climate of a ‘post-conflict’ society. Given this, the artists are interested in how one can think beyond the site’s legacy and to its future.

The Engine Room Gallery, 59 North St, Belfast
Through painting, sculpture, video and sound this exhibition aims to examine the human condition and the capacity to understand our relationships with ‘self’ and ‘others’. ‘Shortcut through the trees’ is concerned with the exploration of ‘place’ and ‘belonging’. It is about harmony and discord; the notion that everything does not adhere to its symbolism. Multiple meanings will exist, often resulting in a paradox. It deals in opposites and contradictions: black and white, shadow and light, movement and stillness, clarity and obscurity, and the interplay between different dimensions. The work encourages us to look at the familiar and see the unknown....
