The project will see three pairings of creatives exchange ideas across a five month period resulting in a three week programme (one week per residency) of interdisciplinary exhibitions. These may take any shape; from a symposium or performance, to the production of a written document or installation. Leo Devlin Devlin's work begins with objects, images and materials that are intuitively selected over a long period of time. The collection builds and acts as a resource from which the artist draws out relationships between material qualities or behaviours; in the process assembling a subject or matter to deal with. These acts of observation and generation create visual equations, the expressions emphasised by the artist through drawing and installation. These bodies of work are then later decanted into experimental activity, which at the live event often become imbued with qualities of the specific site. Leo Devlin was born in Omagh in 1983, and is currently based in Belfast. He received a First class honers degree in Fine Art from the University of Ulster in 2006. He has exhibited widely in Gallery's and specific sites in Ireland, the UK, Europe and South America. His work is in the private collection of the University of Ulster. http://www.flaxartstudios.com/leo.html Bean & Benjamin Sebastian Directors of ]performance s p a c e [ Bean is the founder of ]performance s p a c e [.
