The Dark presents a constellation of works by artists from Northern Ireland, England and Germany.

The artists look out into space, back to Earth and considers science fiction, fact and artist projections. Darren Banks' blobs and sci-fi looking things create eerily close encounters and uncanny upending of everyday objects.

Agnes Meyer Brandis' has trained a fleet of geese for life on the moon (based on Godwin's The Man in the Moone) and Sinead McKeever's GEO Star E shows us a charred globe as seen from beyond, which in light of the tragic fires in Australia takes on an extra pathos. Liz Collini's text-based drawings expose the component parts of letters making a whole, like the constellations making up a galaxy.
