The exhibition runs from 2nd November 2019 – 21st December 2019. Solo show at Millennium Court Arts Centre.
Come explore obscure and familiar collections from other lands. The artist takes you on a road trip through America, and shows you collections objects from Japan, Norway, Iceland, Australia and more. You can take part by divulging a dream story that could be performed on the night, or by surrendering an unwanted gift in her Re-Gift Amnesty.
“She seems to have a knack for finding the bizarre and unique, sometimes under your very nose, in locations you pass by every day. There are moments when her work can make one feel, as Walker Percy would say, “sunk into our own everydayness.” This exchange is perhaps what is most compelling about Leech’s practice; it challenges the unexamined inheritances of our day-to day affairs.” David Hawkins for Cville newspaper, USA, 2013.
A FREE bus will leave Golden Thread Gallery in Belfast at 6.45pm, and return at 9pm.
