Blood Drops in Snow

July 18th 2012, Motorcade FlashParade

We’re delighted that this July, Tertulia is able to host Belfast-based traditional singer and video artist Phil Hession. He’ll be performing his piece Blood Drops in Snow on the 18th at Motorcade Flashparade in Bedminster (doors open at 7:00pm, free entry but donations will be very gratefully received ), and then will be in conversation with Phil Owen at Arnolfini on the 19th at 7:30. More info here and here .

Phil was born in Omagh in 1978 and now lives and works in Belfast. He has recently completed residencies at The Banff Centre, Canada (Jan – March 2011) and Residence Botkyrka, Stockholm, Sweden (May – June 2011).

Since graduating with a BA in Fine Art from the University of Ulster in 2001 he has exhibited video works and made performances internationally, including: Elective Perspective, April 2010 (Video), Galeria Arsenal, Bialystok, Poland; ….a stranger I came…. Taiwan, March 2010 (Performance), KYU Art Centre, Kaohsiung, Taiwan; and Isolated, January 2009 (Video), Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast.
Phil Hession is represented by the Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast.
Very many thanks to Penny and Julie at Motorcade Flashparade, and Sophia at Colston Hall for all your help!
