Belfast Exposed is pleased to present Proverbs by Robert Ellis, an on-going body of work using photographic images and audio recordings that engages with the contemporary landscape of Uganda while exploring its layers of memory.
While the proverbs themselves exist as a result of concentrated wisdoms based on experience, the images here do not attempt to portray the age-old wisdoms. Rather, they seek to create a platform which might allow them to be re-imagined. Wandering through this unfamiliar landscape, Ellis’ photographs linger on the people and its landforms.
Fluid in approach, there are no fixed stories to tell, or no conclusive outcomes to communicate, rather an overarching narrative considers how place is experienced, in terms of its aesthetic values, and for the layers of memory and history that it holds.
Artist Talk: Wednesday 12 April, 1pm. Please visit the events page for more information.
