Ulster University Art Gallery

A series of artworks based on Amanda Dunsmore’s recollections of making the silent filmed portraits which comprise the artwork AGREEMENT.
AGREEMENT started in 2004 with an aim to film and acknowledge the important roles played by all the signatories of the Belfast ‘Good Friday’ Agreement. The resulting artwork consists of 14 video portraits through which the audience reflect on each of the sitters, as the sitters reflect silently.
This exhibition presents new work, entitled MEMENTO – AGREEMENT, involving drawing, text and printing process to revisit each of the video portraits that Dunsmore undertook between 2004 and 2022.These reflective portraits are made from a mix of typed text, pen & ink portraits and map etchings.
The drawings are accompanied by a video installation of Billy’s Museum, another artwork by Amanda Dunsmore that the AGREEMENT sitters viewed as their silent portraits were captured.
