Description

Things are not what they seem at the ArtisAnn Gallery in October.

The Square’ is an exhibition of new works by Peter Richards that invites visitors to see something appear as something other, reminding them of their role as the unreliable author of their own truths. Sometimes, it is difficult to believe what you think you see.

Peter Richards is an artist based in Belfast, in the North of Ireland.  A long-standing member of the Royal Ulster Academy (RUA), he is also an esteemed gallery curator.

He works in a range of media including forms of photography, installation and performance. His works can be seen as artistic enquiries into subjects, such as: how understanding is formed and truth is subscribed to; how we each have the capacity to suspend disbelief in order to continue believing in chosen truths.

Peter often engages with interactions between re-presentation, time and referencing. He exhibits internationally and, in 2005, participated in Northern Ireland’s inaugural presentation at the Venice Biennale, ‘The Nature of Things – A Long Weekend’.

Admission is free. All art is also available to buy, and may be collected/delivered after the exhibition ends.

You can also buy art from this exhibition through the own art scheme; an interest free loan over 10 months (and you still get to take the art home immediately the exhibition ends).
