AMINI Graduate Award Showcase; featuring artists: Marta Dyczowska; Joey O’Gorman; and Dara Flanagan


AMINI is delighted to present Separate Systems, a showcase of work from our Graduate Award Winners. Since 2016 the award has been selected each year from moving image work presented at the Belfast School of Art Degree Show.

Tomorrow Still Blind Advances Slowly (2018) 4 min – Marta Dyczkowska

History, Experience and Delusion (2018) 5 min – Joey O’Gorman

Ensnare (2016) 8 min – Dara Flanagan


About the artists:

Marta Dyczkowska (BA Fine Art, 2018). Marta’s practice explores the systems that we construct to help us confront and process loss and the human urge to create external receptacles for feelings, memories, and relationships.

Joey O’Gorman (MFA, 2018). Joey’s work explores the interpenetration of the human and nonhuman and considers what lies beyond the boundaries of perception and conception. He questions how the systems that people use to navigate the world are limited and biased, and how they relate to lived experience.

Dara Flanagan (MFA, 2016). Recurring themes in Flanagan’s work include the kitsch and postmodern notions of the sublime. His work is particularly focused on the combination of these two concepts with emphasis on Max Dessoir’s notion of the sublime.


AMINI is an artist led initiative for the promotion and critical discussion of artists’ moving image in Northern Ireland. This event is part of the AMINI Professional Development Programme supported by Visual Artists Ireland, The Mac, Belfast Film Festival and Golden Thread Gallery.

Supported by Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Belfast City Council
