Capitalyst Arts, Martin Boyle
1 July 2009 12:00 – 30 July
VARIOUS RETAIL SPACES AROUND BELFAST CITY CENTRE
1st – 30th July
Martin Boyle produces video pieces that are playful and performative. He re-presents mass produced objects and packaging in digital form for the viewer and highlights a preoccupation with ideas of value or lack off, through the use of consumer goods. This is achieved through manipulation and illusion playing on our need for gratification and the need to reveal and expose. At first glance his pieces may seem like any other advertisement for a product but looking closer Martins shorts depict issues of capitalism using subtle movements or quickly moving objects.
Boyle’s work will be displayed in various retail spaces around the city centre.
