24th May – 21st June 2014

R-Space Gallery, Lisburn, Belfast, Northern Ireland

This exhibition will mark  the end of an 18 month research and development project: Moving Practice, Moving Image. *

Between 2012-2014 Maria reviewed her entire art practice to date, in great detail and she particularly explored the way in which ritual, performance and film have played important roles throughout her career.

The exhibition will illustrate the artist’s journey from form to film, look back over the work she created between 1973-2013, and explore how performance and ritual has impacted on her work and life.

Examples of drawing, ceramics, and wood turning, earth work, installation, and fibre work, sculpture, performance, and painting will all sit beside her most recent work with the moving image. There will also be an experiential film installation in the R-Space gallery.
