Offerings de-install 2018

Can’t quite believe it is a month ago that I de-installed Offerings 2018…… time speeds but strangely stretches…The works came down quicker than they went up…… And you bought me to my knees….. Photos from de-installing Offerings at R-Space Gallery. Lisburn. Northern Ireland. 24-26th March 2018

Offerings Exhibition at R Space Gallery. Lisburn NI is now open!

The Exhibition install went well, took 8 days working on site. The opening reception took place on Saturday 24th February and I ran a ‘Reconsidering Clothes’ workshop on Wednesday 28th February. I have very much enjoyed the process of working with the gallery space. ‘Bit of Skirt’ and ‘waisted: wasted’ were finally completed in the gallery. Photos below are of installing the work, including the much needed scaffolding tower which, at times, seemed to became part of the work. Offerings continues until Friday 23rd March 2018.
