Exhibition: And Europe Will Be Stunned @ Golden Thread


This week is the last to see Yael Bartana’s video trilogy And Europe Will Be Stunned in Belfast’s Golden Thread Gallery. The Israeli artists trilogy of video pieces are broken into three works: Mary Koszmary (Nightmares), Mur i wieża (Wall and Tower) and Zamach (Assassination), which were released in 2007, 2009 and 2011 respectively. Bartana’s work explores propaganda, the migration of people and the longing and desires of people. Her output sees the a disassociation between fiction and reality hard to navigate, a process that increases the impact of the work.

And Europe Will Be Stunned continues until May 13th, with full details about the show available here, with a interview with Bartana below.
