25th March – 20th May 2023
Golden Thread Gallery presents new work by Dorothy Hunter, titled fully conscious movements, fully different time.
Hunter was awarded an Artists Career Enhancement Scheme (ACES) award by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland in November 2022. Her exhibition in the Project Space focuses on the changing underground terrain in the caves of Fermanagh and Cavan, through video and installation artwork.
Hunter uses careful interventions within her installations, creating space to contemplate different geographic sites and aid our interpretation of time and space. She is interested in different modes of displaying artwork and the act of collecting.
“Geographic sites (such as the caves) can be embodiments or agitators in chronopolitics, as arenas of conflicting means of marking time; so can visual art as cultural phenomena. For this reason place, the “encoding” of events within it, and modes of display are key elements of my practice.”
