TOLD/UNTOLD – Elin Johnstone – 29 May and 6 June to 2 July

Meet the Artist – 29th May – An informal opportunity to meet Elin Johnstone and view her new work. “TOLD/UNTOLD”

In this solo exhibition of inter-related installations, Elin investigates aspects of collective and individual corporeal presence, conditions of self and impact upon place, and makes visible resonances of embedded cultural, social, and personal memory. She employs Video and Experimental Moving Image, 2D Digital Imaging, and 3D Sculptural Assemblage to interpret and signify thematic perceptions, emotions, and concerns which, whether revealed or withheld, serve to shape and define individual or shared values and responses.

Her work has been exhibited and screened nationally and internationally including digital arts and film festivals in Berlin, Copenhagen, Athens, Porto, Barcelona, Madrid, UK and USA, and is held in the public collections of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, The Poetic Phonotheque, Copenhagen, and Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council.
