Through a series of conversations artist Alice Blackstock has created a new body of work. Alice invited five women who inspire her to share their adventures, trials, healing and decisions. The result was five portraits that map these moments in time. These visual responses are meaningful to the individual but also encourage the viewer to consider their own life experiences and the hurdles they have overcome.
To accompany the Alice’s artwork Esther Mogada, who runs Belfast based video production company Creating a Space, has produced a documentary about the making of Five Conversations. This will be screened on the opening of the exhibition. Esther will be joining us on the opening night to capture the moment that Mary, Emma, Jacqui, Heather and Jenny get to see their portrait for the first time.
Please join us for the opening night on the 16th of December and meet the amazing women who this work is attributed too. The exhibition opens at 7pm and the documentary will be screened at 7.30 pm.
