Birds with No Passports
John Brown
1 June-27 July Exhibition

Currently based in Belfast, John Brown is a poet, visual artist, and editor originally from Limavady. As a visual artist, John has exhibited for over twenty years throughout Ireland and the UK and has curated exhibitions in the Netherlands and Ireland. Birds with No Passports includes drawings, collage, mixed media works and sculptures from found objects to capture real and imagined birds. In this new exhibition and accompanying book of poems, John explores the differences between birds and humans; how birds and humans differ in dealing with love, death, migration, borders, ecology and how their rituals, rites of passage and language differ. With humour, John punctures the notion that just because humans do not have bird brains and do have language, they are far more intelligent than birds. John asks simple questions that are difficult to answer. Can humans make birdsongs? Can birds speak a language?

Launch & Artist Talk: Saturday 1 June, 3pm | Refreshments provided
