Past Belfast Exchange Gallery Exhibition
Joanne Mullin - 1 April to 13 May 2016
Joanne Mullin’s work is a contemplative observation of space, memory and conflict, exploring how a place operates as an archive of its traumatic history. She looks critically at how architecture is an articulation of representation, highlighting the issue of power, control and gender. For Belfast Exposed Futures she is creating a new body of work exploring the psychological impact of the changing landscape of Northern Ireland by documenting the interiors of decommissioned Police Stations.
Joanne Mullin (b.1975) lives and works in Northern Ireland. She graduated from the Photography department at the University of Ulster in 2012 with First Class Honours. She was nominated for the Magnum Graduate award in 2015, and was a finalist of Fresh Faced and Wild Eyed at The Photographers Gallery London in 2013. Her work has been exhibited at The Photographers Gallery and in Finland as part of the Backlight Photo Festival 2014. Her work is held by private collectors and the collection of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
To accompany this exhibition we have produced a limited edition A2 poster print available to buy at £25. Please contact ciara@belfastexposed to reserve your print.
