A FALSE DAWN 

Centre Culturel Irlandais Paris 

September to October 2019 

A False Dawn, brings together a suite of work that seeks to investigate the experience of insecurity, fast becoming a universal condition as we struggle to subsist in an impoverished and increasingly unstable civil society, in which personal solutions are prescribed to global problems. Burke’s work explores the rise of populism as a global phenomenon. Whilst her work is born out of a Northern Irish context of contested spaces, identities and borders her work also looks outwards towards Brexit and Trump politics, posing questions in relation to the success or failure of the political enterprise. The concept for new progressive politics to take shape, with many false dawns is redolent in this body of work.
