From Friday 9th December until Monday 9th January, Jarman Award winning artist Séamus Harahan brings his newest exhibition to Tyneside Cinema. Trees Prosper project, is the new installation by the Northern Irish artist made in Derry and comprising a sound piece, songs, as well as moving image. Before the exhibition, there’s a special preview and talk taking place on Thursday 8th December.
This all follows on from Tyneside Cinema’s successful collaboration with Film London and the Jarman Award
resulting in exhibitions by John Smith and Ursula Mayer previously, and the 2015 winner of the award now. Making use of a fascinatingly low-tech approach in how he makes his images, and a keen interest in the social and cultural environments that form his surroundings, the visuals in the exhibition draw on so much. Along The Faughan Side is a project bringing together a number of collaborators working under the name of Trees Prosper (Patrick Morgan, Christina Anna Morgan and Sara J. Barry), who have in turn worked with Irish folk singer Len Graham. The urban environment is often at the core of some captivating low-fi footage, with the chance to find out more in the preview and talk.
