SacrumProfanum at the Belfast Book Festival

You are invited  to the world premiere performance and exhibition of SacrumProfanum on June 9 at the Crescent Arts Centre as part of the Belfast Book Festival. The exhibition will run from June 9 – 23 in the Crescent gallery.

SacrumProfanum combines contemporary music, poetry, video installation and visual art, fieldwork reportage and innovative publication design in a large-scale multimedia performance and exhibition responding to the enigmatic sheela-na-gig stone carvings. It represents the culmination of five years of intense work on the sheela-na-gigs by composer Benjamin Dwyer and myself, which has led to collaborations with a team of innovative artists.
