Belfast Exposed

Belfast Exposed is delighted to present Street View: Tristan Poyser which features two projects - The Invisible In-between: An Englishman’s Search For The Irish Border and Masked: a Portrait of Amazon - by artist Tristan Poyser. The two projects share a commonality, in that they both explore political, cultural and social issues at a time of great uncertainty. In both projects, Poyser engaged with the public to 'encompass their opinions, hopes and desires about their unique socio-political situations. As a collective, their voices amass an account which is representative of precarious times. Each respondent was invited to tear a print in ‘The Invisible In-between’ to make the invisible visible then to share a written comment about their thoughts on Brexit. In a similar manner, a subset of photographs from ‘Masked’ is a series of 130 Amazon employees asked to write and display their introspections.'

Reed in Partnership

Did you know that 8 out of 10 children learn about money from their parents? But not all parents feel comfortable talking about money to their children. Some parents might think that money shouldn't be discussed with children until they are much older. But evidence suggests that children can start learning about money from a very young age. A lot of what they need to learn as adults to manage money well is already in place by the age of seven e.g. learning to wait for things.
