'Somewhere' and 'Threshold'

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibitionResearch

Abstract

Over a ten year period Wilson made a series of major public commissions all of which focused on boundaries and points of access. In 2000 she was commissioned to create a 400m long and 3m high sculptural railing and four gateways for The Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast. It replaces a security wall that was erected between the hospital and the Falls Road during ‘the Troubles’ in Northern Ireland. Entitled ‘Life Span’ the railings represent a celebration of life. Reflecting further on the significance of the physical and personal relationships we hold between one place and another,Wilson has presented new work in two solo exhibitions; ‘Somewhere’ at the Otter Gallery, University of Chichester (15th March to 28th April 2013) and ‘Threshold’ at R Space Gallery, Belfast Northern Ireland (11th May to 8th June 2013). The two exhibitions primarily explore a relationship between records of place and material status. In ‘Somewhere’ the work fluctuates between the universal and local; the global (objective) perspective to psycho-geographic (subjective) perspective, often related to her connection to Belfast, Northern Ireland.
