HOUSE TAKEN OVER

April 15, 2018 – 7:03 pm |

A weekend of talks, performances and artist responses within a historical home in South Belfast curated by Hickey + Hickey, featuring ACW student Dorothy HUNTER.

Exhibiting Artists
Sighle BHREATHNACH-CASHELL, Joseph BEUYS, Declan CLARKE, John D’ARCY, Irina GHEORGHE, Allan HUGHES, Tom HUGHES, Dorothy HUNTER, Alexey KRASNOVSKY, Gillian LAWLER, Julie LOVETT, Roseanne LYNCH, Colin MARTIN, Lorcan McGEOUGH, Una MONAGHAN, Maeve O’LYNN, Tullis RENNIE, Penelope WARD, AMINI (Artist’s Moving Image Northern Ireland)

This exhibition is made in response to a recent unexpected discovery about the house. During WW2 it held a secret function as the Northern Irish Intelligence Headquarters for a covert operation involving a network of secret listeners who tuned in to their radio sets in homes across the province listening to enemy communications. The logs recorded by the listeners were forwarded to ‘Heathcote’, where they were transferred directly to codebreakers in Bletchley Park to be decrypted.

Sonorities
House Taken Over is presented as part of the Sonorities Festival organised by the Sonic Arts Research Centre at Queen’s University Belfast and includes work that draws on core festival themes: forms of listening, techno-human encounters and matters such as machine-listening and audio-coding.

This project is generously supported by the British Council. With thanks to Irish Art Courier and Golden Thread Gallery

Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris: House Taken Over is part one of a project which will result in a group exhibition on surveillance in the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris (September – December 2018) and in Solstice Arts Centre Navan in 2019.

Hickey + Hickey is the collaborative curatorial practice of sisters Ciara Hickey (Learning Producer at Hillsborough Castle since 2017, Co-Director of Household Belfast and former Curator at Belfast Exposed) and Nora Hickey M’Sichili (Director of the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris, Ireland’s International Arts Centre, since 2013 and former Director of Mermaid Arts Centre in Bray).
