Mak9

[ri-ver-be-ro]

Resonance of a region can carry in the cultural expression within individuals; their gestures, language and the landscape that connect, travel and are packaged within us. [ri-ver-be-ro] is a sense of place through the interaction of people, its materials and cartography, connecting the relationships that unfolded between Italy and Northern Ireland through the artist response to an overseas residency and home territories.
In this two-part residency programme taken up by artist collective Mak9, the four participating artists spent two weeks in Pietrafitta, in Central Italy, in October 2016. This rural residency was followed in March 2017 by a site specific exhibition in St. Martin’s, a deconsecrated church in East Belfast, and a series of workshops, walks and talks as part of the Ulster University Arts & Culture programme.
For more info about the artist residency at La Mola, please check our blog page.

Mak9 are Stuart Cairns, Alice Clark, Gail Mahon and Heather Dornan Wilson
