BEFORE THE END OF THE WORLD
1996 - 2021
Andrej Ðerković / Sean McKernan / Frankie Quinn

This exhibition celebrates the 25th anniversary of the 1996 residential project "Eye2Eye" initiated by original Belfast Exposed Photographers Sean McKernan and Frankie Quinn’s visit to Sarajevo and return visit of Sarajevo Artist Andrej Ðerković to Belfast. Following the 1996 exchange this exhibition was originally shown in 2010 in the Museum of Literature of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo as part of the cultural program "Memory Module" a project of MESS International Theatre Festival.
Sean McKernan and Frankie Quinn will present their photographs taken in Sarajevo in 1996, shortly after the signing of the Dayton Agreement which led to the ending of the infamous Siege of Sarajevo, while Andrej Ðerković will present photographic works from the series
"Belfast - Somewhere in Between" made the same year. The original exhibition is now held in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The museum was heavily shelled and seriously damaged during the siege and is now fully restored.

Opening night Monday 28th November 6-9pm. All welcome
