Mhairi Sutherland in conversation with Frank McElhinney

Belfast Exposed



About The Event

Belfast Exposed invites you to Mhairi Sutherland in conversation with Frank McElhinney, as they discuss 'Re-Imagining Treason.

The event will take place in Belfast Exposed's Gallery I on Thursday 17 Nov, from 6pm.

You can book your free ticket here.

Join Photographer, Mhairi Sutherland, as she discusses her exhibition hosted by Belfast Exposed. In Re-Imagining Treason, Mhairi Sutherland combines research and lens-based media to explore imperialism and nationalism. Representing a long-standing artistic interrogation of the subject, this work is also part of Sutherland’s interest in the contestations and contradictions of Irish-British cultural identity.

Sutherland’s work takes the form of a sea journey, a photographic archive and connected historical narratives. It takes inspiration from the words and lives of Erskine Childers and Mary Spring Rice. Sutherland’s work draws threads of connection between the two, in the wider context of Irish Nationalism in the early-20th century.

Frank McElhinney is a visual artist based in Scotland. His work investigates migration, nationhood and mortality. Having first studied medieval and modern history, Frank investigates contemporary issues through an historical lens. He works with different media but photography is foremost in his practice.
