"Supporting emerging talent is ever more important as we ease out of Lockdown and each and every of these MFA graduates demonstrates talent in their respective genres. Within the show, there is evidence of a very human approach that deals with topics that are considered challenging. The works are profound with a tenderness not often seen in group shows and the sensitivity embraces the audiences into new ways of seeing." - Deirdre Robb, Chief Executive, Belfast Exposed.
The exhibition touches upon relationships with family, community, and environments. After a year of global protests, isolation and illness, the exhibition stands boldly in the face of abuse, conflict, separation and delves into masculinity, sexuality and interaction with the landscape. It is political, socially engaging, and expresses a longing for connection, each work in a unique and personal way; all underpinned by a careful and thoughtful gaze.
