SuperMassiveBlackHole was invited by PhotoIreland Festival and Belfast Photo Festival to present a special exhibit as part of their 2011 exhibition programme. The title Its A Long Way to Paradise (From Here) by the Belfast punk band Stiff Little Fingers sets the tone for this exhibition, which attempts to reflect the current frustrations resulting from the recent economic collapse and political upheavals as interpreted through the urban environment and its inhabitants. This exhibition shows the work of 10 engaging photographers from Ireland and around the world, whose work explores the contradictory nature of living in a modern city; combining a sense of anxiety and hope, of inertia and freedom, and of dreams and reality.

SuperMassiveBlackHole was invited by the Irish Museum of Contemporary Art to present a special exhibit as part of The New Living Art exhibition 2010, curated by Claire Feeley. By using found objects, temporary constructions and momentary interventions, Time in Hand challenges the nature of the photographic subject and questions our relationship with the material world. This original and engaging approach is made all the more exciting by the individual artists shared appreciation for the playful and the poetic.
