Watch artist Paul Moore in conversation with Golden Thread Gallery Director Peter Richards in this new interview, recorded in the gallery in May 2021.

In 2019 Paul Moore received the ACNI Artist Career Enhancement Scheme award to work with Golden Thread Gallery culminating in his exhibition Fionnghlas in the Project Space earlier this year.

Over the course of 2020, when the routine of our daily lives changed so dramatically, Moore began to develop work which is informed by Virtual Reality technology and also the 2020 phenomenon of endurance exercise. Moore is particularly intrigued by the body and landscape, nature and machine, and internal and external experience.

Peter and Paul discuss the ways that his creative practice has developed, how cold water sea-swimming became his lifeline during lockdown, and his exhibition at the GTG.
