N. Irish artist Keef Winter lives and works in London. He combines his interests in art and architecture using sculpture, installation, sound and performance. He completed a PhD in 2013 entitled ‘The Handyman Aesthetic’ at Ulster University.

'The Cusp of Your Credenza' & 'Tissue' Film Screenings by

Anita Delaney

16-19th January, 11am-5pm

The Cusp of Your Credenza is a wandering speculation through various material encounters. A woman presents a number of scenarios that involve the ingestion or ejection of substances. From toenails to statuary, muffins to monuments, The Cusp of Your Credenza wonders how we place ourselves bodily in a material world.

Tissue is a work about the material, historical and social histories of tissues.
