‘Trinity’, artist residency work, Belfast

Trinity was developed during an artist residency in Belfast in June 2009 and is a response to the so called ‘peace walls’ still existing throughout the city; active remnants of the drastic religious and political division of the former war zone. It explores the concept of belonging; to a place, to a cultural group, to a country. The question of who has authority in this environment is presented and the outcome varies depending on the audience.

Description: Three identical yet individual male characters huddle together in secret conversation. Ambient noise from their surroundings disrupts their discussion, causing them to turn and glance over their shoulders with increasing anger at the source of this interruption.
