About The Event

Belfast Exposed invites you to the Artist Talk with Ben Malcolmson, an artist in our Belfast Exposed Futures programme, following the opening of his exhibition 'Murmur' in Gallery 2.

"'Murmur' delves into the connection of migration and selfhood, looking at the subtle changing relationship within one's identity and nature. 'Murmur' questions our faint sense of belonging in the landscape from which we are woven.

Travelling to Kuwait, the sense of an all-consuming social identity within young Kuwaitis, resulted in the comparison of Ben's native land - influenced by layers of historic conflict prominent within both regions. These elements resulted in reflecting upon a personal sense of identity within the Northern Irish landscape.

Through the experimentation of materiality, he follows his lineage through the Northern Irish landscape, in hopes of uncovering a deeper sense of understanding of my homeland and myself."
