Untitled (balancing act #2)
July 2008

Exhibited in "The Garden Project" at Catalyst Arts, Belfast.


This statement, and the work recording it, was made for Belfast's longest running artist-run exhibition space, Catalyst Arts.

I was asked by Catalyst to make a work for the gallery as it moves into a rather uncertain future - the four story building the hosts the gallery as well as artist studios has been scheduled for demolition to make way for a new supermarket & car park. Progress can be a mixed bag...

The letters are made from mirror craft card, and the piece stands at over 2 metres tall, held up by a erratic scaffolding of thing wooden dowel.
