A Sorrowful Healing: Reflections in stitch, sound and word on the Troubles in Northern Ireland and the peace gained.  

Eileen Harrisson PhD exhibition

7 February to 11 March 2022 

This exhibition explores the creative relationship between stitch, sound and word through the prism of my experiences of the Troubles in Northern Ireland. It bears witness to my sorrow at the suffering of the conflict and desire for the peace gained to hold and be expanded on. A nurse’s cape and artworks hand-stitched on linen, interspersed with poems, tell out the stories. A looped sound-track, Fusion, voices how thread pulled through fabrics replicates the sound of the bombings, my voice telling out the ensuing confusion and reflections on the theme in tone and poetry.
