History of gallery provides inspiration for new exhibition

MAK9, a group of artists and makers, have invaded the R-Space Gallery in Lisburn with site specific works that have fed off the rich history of the dilapidated Georgian rectory attached to the newly renovated gallery.

The exhibition, Things That Fall In Between, runs until Saturday June 16, at R-Space Gallery, 32 Castle Street, Lisburn and the official opening takes place on Saturday from 2pm to 4pm.

MAK9 invited artists and makers to immerse themselves in the surroundings and explore the untouched historic and visual textures in the upper and lower areas of the building.

The main gallery is turned into an ‘archive’ of the drawings, notes, sketches, images, sounds and stories about the artworks as they evolved.

Tours to see the artworks in the old building will run from 2pm to 4pm, Wednesday to Saturday, or by appointment for group bookings.

The ‘archive’ in the main gallery is open from 11am to 5pm, Wednesday to Saturday. Some of the artists from the exhibition will be giving a talk about their work on Saturday, June 16 at 12pm, in the main gallery.

Things That Fall In Between has been supported by the National Lottery through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
