Arcade Studios Belfast




Arcade Studios is delighted to host a collaborative exhibition between two emerging Northern Irish artists, Kathryn Graham and Yasmine Robinson.

Kathryn Graham (b.1995, Armagh) and Yasmine Robinson (b.1994, Co.Derry/ Londonderry) come together for their first joint show “Look the Horse in the Mouth” at Arcade Studios Belfast. The show will expose a new series of works that have been improvised from the Twilight zone of life during the pandemic living across London and Northern Ireland. The exhibition presents a playful reflection of the proverbial saying, “Don’t Look a gift horse in the Mouth”; meaning, when receiving a gift be grateful for what it is; don’t imply you wished more. Graham and Robinson’s work is an unapologetic mixture of materiality, memory, place and Princesses..
