Catalyst are delighted to announce a joint commission in collaboration with ‘Under The Radar’ curator, Michele Horrigan.
Belfast artist Jane Butler will create a new work titled ‘and yet’, this temporary site-specific installation will be situated on Dalton Street, East-Belfast from the 15th June until the 27th.
Jane Butler proposes an urban intervention in Belfast City centre, and yet. Acknowledging that a billboard at the top of Castle Street has sat empty and grown dilapidated for many years, the artist aims to replicate its identity and highlight its abandonment by copying and pasting it as a photographic reproduction onto a functioning billboard within the city. Butler notes that the project highlights the idea of the ‘discarded ordinary’ within the city, and acts to raise the familiar into the unusual.
