Description

PS² = (Paragon Studios / project space), is a small artist collective, with studio space in the centre of Belfast. Alongside the studio space, PS² uses a former shop, project space, on the ground floor of the building as a platform for art projects and cultural activities which are often located at fringe locations in the city and further afield. The focus of PS² is on urban intervention and social interaction by artists, urban practitioners, multidisciplinary groups and theorists.
PS² is run on a voluntary, non-commercial base, supported by funding from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and other sources. The projects are initiated and organized by Peter Mutschler together with Ruth Morrow as curatorial adviser.
Studio artists include - Sharon Kelly, Paddy McCann, Jill McKeown, Peter Mutschler and Bill Saunders.


Company description
PRIME collective (Charlotte Bosanquet, Alissa Kleist, Tonya McMullan) will undertake a residency in the store room of PS². For three/six months the back room will be archived and documented and will form the basis of a series of reactive works made by the artist collective. The storeroom will also act as PRIME’s studio and office space for a further three months, in which the group will make new works and negotiate aspects of collaboration. The first residency at PS2 will culminate in a show of curated works by PRIME. Belfast based artists Charlotte Bosanquet, Alissa Kleist and Tonya McMullan initiated PRIME in January 2011.
PRIME aims to provide a mutually supportive context in which to develop work, benefiting from networking and learning opportunities amongst the group and with other art professionals. The group meets on a monthly basis to further understand and analyse their own practices and that of others as well as actively seeking opportunities for the group to exhibit and curate works. The meetings also serve as a platform to discuss any research including films, literature, critical texts and visual art. The group actively encourages collaborations with other artists and organizations.
These collaborations can take the form of guest artist / curators, seminars, talks and critiques. The Storeroom/Showroom project undertaken by Belfast-based artist collective PRIME (Charlotte Bosanquet, Alissa Kleist, Tonya McMullan) takes the form of an artistic excavation, whereby the three members of PRIME investigate the objects found in the storeroom adjacent to the gallery.
