Exhibition running 7th-14th May 2009

The Hero and Now is a major solo show of new work by Belfast-Hebridean artist Helen Sharp.

The show presents a collection of prints, video, photographs and a live radio broadcast all developed over the past three years during her time as a PhD candidate at the University of Ulster.

Sharp’s PhD subject is ‘Illusions of Autobiography in Contemporary Art’ and maintains her thesis incentive is to prove the possibility of erasing oneself through autobiography…

Sharp’s practice has its foundations in an on-going project of ‘memory-journeys’ in which she travels to locations of ‘drug, time or experience – induced hazy memory’ and documents what she finds.

The show runs in Catalyst Arts, Belfast and runs for just a week. At the artists request the show will be flanked by wine and music on either end, opening on the Thursday 7th of May and closing on Thursday 14th of May with dj sets by Sharp herself and by David Holmes.
