Video Encounters: Inside the Story | Rachel MacLean and Bedwyr Williams at Golden Thread Gallery

5 October to 18 November 2017

Why not come and have your senses rearranged courtesy of The Lion and The Unicorn by Rachel Maclean and The Starry Messenger by Bedwyr Williams, presented side-by-side in the North of Ireland for the first time! Inside the Story is a welcome alternative to the big binary ideas that have dominated the political landscape for the past two years. Anything could happen when Rachel meets Bedwyr in this fabulous collision of glitter, make-believe and dark wit.

The Golden Thread Gallery is delighted to launch its Video Encounters exhibition series with these two remarkable artists and their works of wonder. The Video Encounters series of exhibitions will create opportunities to engage with and delve into works of international acclaim and to encourage the imagining of conservations between each other.

Video Encounters: Inside the Story explores the re-imagining of identity and social structures, through divergent approaches to context and narrative. Both works feature the artist in the lead role/s and in front of the camera.

The Golden Thread Gallery would like to acknowledge the generous support of the British Council Collection, who loaned both works in the exhibition.
