BERTIEN VAN MANEN | BELFAST EXPOSED, BELFAST IRELAND
January 15 - March 19, 2016
Beyond Maps and Atlases by internationally renowned Dutch photographer Bertien van Manen. This is the artist's first body of work produced in Ireland and traces her journey across the island over the past year and a half. During her visits she stayed in the homes of strangers, mostly other photographers living across Ireland, who became friends with van Manen and made work alongside the artist. While travelling she became immersed in Irish literature and was guided by the words and landscapes of Seamus Heaney, John Banville and John McGahern as much as the people she traveled with.
