This exhibition is the latest outcome of the artist Paul Moore’s ongoing #nonarnia project. This Belfast-focused project critiques the adoption of fantastic cultural icons as signifiers of the gentrification processes.

For ‘Unsettlement’ Moore, a multidisciplinary Belfast-based artist, took over Gallery 1 of Platform Arts Belfast in July 2017 to create a No-Narnia No-Fantasy artistic comment to these administration-directed processes in Belfast.

Please take part on #nonarnia (to share pictures of your wardrobe) & #atthelampost (for lampost-based stories).

The accompanying text for the exhibition, written by Dorothy Hunter, is available online on Platform’s PARS website.

On opening night, 6th July a procession-performance ceremony took place at 6.45pm on the ground floor of Platform Art, entrance from Castle St. Thanks to Simon Mills & David Bunting for the documentation.
