International Arts Culture Network (ICAN) presents Voices Interned An exhibition of photographs by Geraldine Gallagher Thursday 27th September 2012 to Thursday 4th October 2012

Voices Interned is an exhibition of photographs focusing on families of ex-political prisoners in Northern Ireland, devised and delivered by Geraldine Gallagher.

Geraldine is currently producing a methodology to help release internalized memory, in particular memories that have been deliberately suppressed. Working with family members of political ex-prisoners, she explores the stories of families who have been forced to live by a code of ‘what ever you say, say nothing'.

The photographs will relate the experiences of these families through a process of reenacting their stories.

The opening of the exhibition will be held on Thursday 27th September at 7pm at The Playhouse which will be opened by Professor Paul Arthur of University of Ulster. The exhibition will be followed by a short conversation chaired by Eamonn Baker from The Junction.

Free All are welcome
