127 Green Lanes
5th May to 26th May 2018
(Gallery open 11-6 Wed-Sat)
A solo exhibition by Belfast-based street artist and printmaker Leo Boyd, which explores the idea that we are living in a computer simulation – a world in which the fake and the fictional are held in the highest regard.
This exhibition presents a series of artist-created cultural artefacts that span the history of a Simulated World; from early tech worship etchings and mass produced sim erotica, to pixelated agitprop and intimate portraits of simulated individuals.
This new series of experimental screenprints, paintings and mixed media pieces throws a satirical light on our deep seated and often confused ideas of what it is to be real and asks ‘If you can’t tell the difference, what does it matter anyway?’
