Paul Moore is a visual artist based in Belfast. He is a graduate of the MA in Art Research and Collaboration from Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology. His selected shows include Unsettlement, Platform Arts Gallery, Belfast (2017), G R O U P S H O W, Golden Thread Gallery Belfast (2016). Statəcraft, Irish Museum of Modern Art Project Space, Dublin (2016), lorem ipsum, ADF Gallery Belfast (2015) and Palace Revolution, Galveston Arts Centre, Texas U.S.A. (2014). In 2019, Moore received the ACNI Artist Career Enhancement Scheme to work with Golden Thread Gallery, where he is currently developing work which is informed by VR and the phenomenology of endurance exercise, the body and the landscape, nature and machine, and internal and external experience.

Philip Kenny is a poet based in Dublin. Recently he has exhibited in the Arts and Disability Ireland Curated Spaces online exhibition, ‘The Finest Specimens of Fossilised Duration’. Previously he has performed at Knockan Stockan and Electric Picnic. Additionally, Philip received the Arts Council and Arts & Disability Ireland Mentoring Award in 2019 and has been published in Storytellers edited by Anna Fox. The poems he writes and performs are personal, sensory, sometimes normal (relatively) and often surreal and abstract. He has mild Asperger’s Syndrome, which connects the world in a way he is familiar with, but often appears obscure to others. For Philip, writing and speaking has ever been a way of connecting people to that world.

This exhibition is supported by Dublin City Council, ARC at IADT, Arts & Disability Ireland and the Arts Council. The artists featuring in this exhibition have also been supported to make their work by A4 Sounds ‘We only want the earth’ programme and Flax Art Studios.
