Artist Talk: Max PinckersEvents
About The Event
Belfast Exposed invites you to the Artist Talk with Max Pinckers, following the opening of his exhibition 'Margins of Excess' in Gallery 1.
"Margins of Excess exists at the intersection between accepted truth and subjective realities, between fact and fiction. The series focuses on the stories of six characters based in North America all of whom momentarily received nationwide attention in the US press.
Darius McCollum drew the limelight through his compulsive hijacking of trains, Herman Rosenblat through his self-invented love-story set in a concentration camp during WWII and Ali Alqaisi for his claim to be the ‘hooded man’ in the iconic photo from Abu Ghraib prison. Each of these characters maintain their own highly personal sense of individual truth but all were unmasked by the press and portrayed as frauds or con artists."
