Launching Thursday 12th March, 6pm, Duncairn Centre for Arts & Culture welcomes visual artist Brian Kielt for his solo exhibition ‘Alternate State’.
‘Alternate State’ explore methods of depicting the phenomenological. Life is in a constant state of change and experiences may merge fact and fabrication throughout. This exhibit is a highlight of works produced in the past two years from Kielt’s studio in Belfast.
In addition to the artwork selected, Poetry NI's Geraldine O’Kane and Colin Dardis have created works to accompany the paintings. These literary interpretations can guide or misguide the viewer into other realms of interpretation. The poems will be available to buy on the night of the launch as a chapbook, with proceeds going to the StART Talking charity which aims to raise awareness and education for mental health issues in the student community.
On his latest collection of works Brian said “This body of work is taken directly from my studio practice. The main challenge when selecting the work for the show is that each piece has its own distinction. It is the process and the methodology behind the work that will hopefully unify the exhibition. I’m excited to see how the poets have interpreted the work as they have not been made aware of any inclinations I had when making the paintings.”

The 'Alternate State' chapbook is also available to order through our Pen Points Press store.
