Mak9 will be bringing the Riverbero project to East Belfast in March, 2017. Artists Alice Clark, Heather Dornan-Wilson, Gail Mahon and Stuart Cairns will be installing works in St.Martins deconsecrated church on the Newtonards Road reflecting their recent experiences from their residency in Pietrafitta, Italy. The exhibition is supported by Art Arcadia and the University of Ulster, Arts and Culture and continues mak9’s explorations of material culture, landscape and the human experience.
Mak9 is showing The Lime Walk Project at Pollen Studios – opening at 6.30 on Thursday 6th of August and continues on the 7th and 8th of August from 12-4pm each day. The exhibition shows the continuing work of Paola Bernardelli, Aidan Deery, Alice Clarke, Gail Mahon, Stuart Cairns and Heather Wilson drawn from their shared experiences on a short residency at Castle Ward in 2014. Collectively the work covers many media including sound, film, installation, ceramic and lens based media with the practices overlapping in many instances. This exhibition was originally shown in Void Studios in Derry earlier this year, the show at Pollen is a progression from this and is only on for a short time so be sure not to miss it. Mak9 is a collaborative collective interested in making in all its forms headed up by a steering group of Heather Wilson, Gail Mahon and Stuart Cairns and its participants have all shown nationally and internationally.
Mak9’s latest exhibition – the Lime Walk Project, opens saturday the 11th of April at 3pm, Void Studios, Derry. It is a continuation of the initial work carried out during their mini residency at Castleward last year and features work by Stuart Cairns, Heather Wilson, Gail Mahon, Alice Clark, Aiden Deery and Paola Bernardelli.
