More hope. Six short films extricated from the undergrowth of the cold open series. The unfinished work was shot across 2007 to 2008, around Hopefield Avenue and the Waterworks in north Belfast, another “garden for the gardenless” much like Waterlow Park. And less. And more.

Exhibition title and included film are eponymous to the song from Robyn G Shiels‘ debut album ‘A Lifetime of Midnights’ – No Dancing Records, Belfast. January 1, 2008.

Harahan is an ex-director of Catalyst Arts Belfast, was an artist in residence at Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris (2015), received a Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Artists (2009) and represented Northern Ireland in the 51st Venice Biennale (2005).
