Beneath the Mantle | Emma McKervey and Philip Mussen at Ards Arts Centre, Newtonards

02/05/2019 – 23/05/2019 – 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Sunburst Gallery | Ards Arts Centre, Ards Arts Centre, Newtownards
Opening: Thursday 2 May, 7 – 9pm. Beneath the Mantle explores, through visual art and poetry by Philip Mussen and Emma McKervey, sites around the Ards and Lecale Peninsulas which have developed sacred resonance through human mark-making, identifying them as borderlands and liminal spaces. These spaces include early Christian and Neolithic sites as well as the places where archaeology has uncovered traces of human endeavour to survive on the land. This exhibition explores how humans create gestures in the landscape to mark points on their journeys, and which also carry echoes for our own.
