About The Event

Coinciding with the exhibition preview of 'Islands & Myths' at Belfast Exposed, we will host an artist talk with the contemporary photographer Sanne De Wilde on Thursday 28th June at 5:30pm.

Visit the exhibition page for more information.

The Island of the Colorblind by Sanne De Wilde tells the story of Pingelap and Pohnpei, islands in the Pacific where there is an extraordinarily high percentage of achrompatopsia (complete colour-blindness) amongst communities living there. In the late eighteenth century, a catastrophic typhoon swept over Pingelap. One of the survivors, the king, carries the rare achromatopsia-gen, and as years passed by, the hereditary condition affected many of the islanders. Presented at Belfast Exposed as a series of infrared and black & white photographs alongside an interactive installation where visitors are invited to paint onto photographic images under a specially designed lighting and sound system, ‘The Island of the Colorblind’ explores the nature of the condition and the way in which it affects vision, individual experience, and colour-disorientation.
