Surroundings
Flax Project Space, Belfast
Group Show
3 - 10 March 2022




Surroundings is a group exhibition based on the environment that we submerge
ourselves in, both in nature and at home. Throughout diverse artistic methods and
mediums, a selection of Flax Emerging Artists present works that are linked by their subject: the nature, scenes and surroundings closest to each artist, whether that be physically or metaphorically. Whether representational or abstract, each work demonstrates the intimate relationship we have with our surroundings, allowing it to influence and inspire our current art practices.
Flax Art Studios Emerging Artist Programme is a satellite project of 34 recent
graduate and emerging artists occupying 7 North St, Belfast. To coincide with this
programme Flax opened a project space on the ground floor, providing opportunities
for the artists involved to curate and programme their own exhibitions and events.
