Cinderella Complex Exhibition- Exhibitions
An exhibition by Zara Lyness at Framewerk, Belfast.
Not only do we need to find our voice, we also need to find our feet to see how we fit in different circumstances. This installation and performance has developed from an on-going inability to let go of crutches and traces of the past. By making a past (practical) obsession into a fragile (impractical) totem Lyness has chosen to focus on where she has been and the gaps in between. Connected by the absence of the body the prints and porcelain are all that is left of parts of the journey.
Date & Time: Live performance Sat 24th March 2-4pm
Exhibition Runs 18th March-1st April
