Sunburst Gallery at Ards Arts Centre, Ards Arts Centre, Newtownards
Exhibition Opening: Thursday 6 September, 7pm – 9pm Driven to understand the lasting effects of an early childhood trauma, Robert P. Ryan invokes ghostly figures as the representation of an absence. Seeking to make these intangible influences flesh, Ryan’s oil paintings attempt to manifest something ungraspable. By giving elusive feelings a physical form in stifled poses, simplified compositions and colouring reminiscent of hand-painted photographs; these paintings display a firm connection to photography and the aesthetic of its infancy.

St Augustine\'s Old Schoolhouse, Palace Street, Derry
Exhibition Opening: Saturday 25th August 6:30-8:00pm. A liminal space for extended interactions and readings in stillness, slow and suspended movements. Adapting to the environment as a site of its monastic history, the works will build from an intensification of ritualistic discipline and tensions that confine the primal and glitches of digital pluralistic identities made of emerging posthuman speculations. The vernacular materiality of architecture, a ‘body’ of domestic and functional structure; surfaces, sounds, atmospheric conditions that have affect upon somatic responses in constant recalibration. Collecting evidences and materials accumulating from ephemera to the found, to build a ‘body’ of experiments in...
