About David Copeland

David Copeland utilises conceptual and documentary approaches to explore the boundaries - physical, circumstantial and psychological - that hold humanity in-between. Continually drawing on his own lived experiences and circumstances to make work that is both personal and universal in its concern. David has shown work in both solo and group exhibitions, and this year he was awarded a place on the Belfast Exposed Futures Artist programme.

His current project a place to sleep explores his position within the boundaries of the provincial town he calls home.

About Lucy Jarvis

Lucy Jarvis is a British artist, photographer and environmental activist. Jarvis’ work aims to draw on the engaging practice of being present within the world and deals with rewilding, permaculture, ecological anthropology, and journeys with a particular interest in conservation land management and enclosures. Her work draws on a multifaceted approach to observation and documentation.

In recent works Spring Calling, Jarvis utilises the journey as a tool of process by returning to the county of her childhood home in the process of making the work. Engaging with these methods has allowed her to further question her own relationship to place and develop deeper inquiries into her subject matter.

Anthropology (MFA Graduate Degree Show)

"The works presented are universally human and deeply personal navigations of current climates and a response to exactly this moment in time.  The exhibition sits with the process of grief and walks along the borders of small towns and fallen cities. Artists reckon with the aftermath of abuse and make sense of fluctuating architecture and the human effort to heal our natural environment.  Perception is questioned and subverted to understand home, gender, and community. The work is steadfastly connected in rumination of our time and contemporary in the truest sense of the word."
