Graham Gingles’ new exhibition opens today at The Mac, Belfast

4 July 2014

Artist Graham Gingles’ new exhibition, At Times Like These Men Were Wishing They Were Insects, opens at The Mac, Belfast, today, and runs until 17 August. Inspired by the 1914 campaign by the young Princess Mary to ensure that every uniformed man and woman serving Britain abroad on Christmas Day would receive a ‘gift from the nation’.

Gingles’ exhibition scales up the Princess Mary Box – the brass embossed boxes which were filled with gifts and sent to the front – to room size in the Sunken Gallery of The Mac. It will occupy the entirety of the gallery, to create an immersive installation into which the visitor enters.

Watch Graham talking about the project here.
