A new exhibition entitled ‘Catholic Blood’ by Andrei Molodkin opens at Void on Patrick Street tomorrow night., May 18, at 7.30pm, with an artist’s talk at 8.15pm.
The exhibition, curated by Conor McFeely, is sure to create controversy locally. Molodkin’s controversial work reflects an enduring examination into the corruption imbued in social, political and religious constructs.
Using human blood, crude oil and ballpoint pen, the artist forces the viewer to re-engage with uncomfortable concepts of power and perversion inherent in society and its government. For his exhibition at Void, Andrei Molodkin will present a new installation ‘Catholic Blood in the Rose Window of the Houses of Parliament’, 2013. Created specifically for the context of Derry and Northern Ireland, it addresses the Catholic Relief Act of 1829 and its repercussions.
