Nicky Larkin
The Belfies (Belfast Selfies), 2014

The Belfast Selfies came about as a culmination of a number of ideas.The Belfies are an antidote to the instant 'selfie' way we capture portraits today. Our attention spans have become the casualties of the rapid-fire digital age we find ourselves positioned in, constantly surrounded by millions of ever-changing pixels wherever we go. Between popular culture and digital advertising, there appears to be no escape. The Belfast Selfie project also strives to present a new face of contemporary Belfast, different to the traditional, historically presented ideas of Belfast. Belfie subject's names are not given, as even a name can identify and hence be troublesome in a city with such a fractured past. Each Belfie subject was chosen at random on the streets of Belfast city centre, and given only one simple direction - to look directly into the lens for a prolonged 30 second period.
Nicky Larkin is represented by The Molesworth Gallery, Dublin, and Galeria Strefa A, Krakow.

Mike Harvey: Video still. The video work is narrated by a cast of voice-synthesising programs which approximate different kinds of reassuringly-accented English

Brick Biter, 2014
Digital video, laser prints, wood.
Staring down at your boots, awaiting yet another demolition you blur out in a fit of coughs. Your feet on dry earth, your head in a cloud, Brick Biter's assembly of synthetic narrators pitch in: to recall and edit your memory of being elsewhere, feeling pressed.

'one time your back warm against
a question,
agdehdroiy or iudghwiuhde3ouh
your back warm against
the largest such structure in Europeyouknow'

Mike Harvey's work finds itself 'between displacement and belonging, individual and structure, fascination and fear'.
