Our Blackout collection landed in our fourth venue on Thursday 7th March at Platform Arts, Belfast. Our core Blackout core collection, curated in comic-form at the space, was accompanied by an extended collection of works exclusively created by Nua Collective artists for this exhibition. Launched by gallery co-director Amy Devlin, the launch event was well attended and warmly welcomed by the people of Belfast.

Blackout Core Collection featuring 13 lithographic prints in 'comic-curation'.

As the tour continues, we have learned no matter the location around the world, viewers have connected to the message that we as a collective are aiming to project – highlighting our climate issue as a problem of magnitude and even more so on a domestic level, the difficulties that we are enduring with the increase of inflation and in particular our energy crisis.

Our extended edition features “Blackout” a photographic print by Caoimhe Heaney, “Contrails” a brass miniatures by Robert Jackson, “Apparition” a relief rubbing by Carol Healy, “Erosion” an installation by Maria Markham, “The Sun Will Appear” a painting by Paul McMahon, “Recovery” a fabric print by Eamonn B. Shanahan, “Strike” a large painting by Anne Martin Walsh and two pieces by Katrina Tračuma including “The Corncrake does not have a tractor to drive to parliament with” and a “Portrait of Eimear Friel, The Ambassador of Ireland to Latvia” (in honour of her opening our debut physical exhibition in Jelgava, Latvia last December 2023).

Thank you to all who attended our launch and to Platform Arts who have been wonderful in facilitating our exhibition in Belfast.
