Solstice is delighted to present George Bolster, You Are Made of Stardust, an exhibition of new and recent work by New York-based Irish artist George Bolster. This exhibition features new works which will be exhibited for the first time as well as recent large scale works that were developed during his residency at the Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI) and subsequent research with the Kepler Mission scientists from NASA Ames in Northern California. Two important works in the exhibition are You Are Made of Stardust (2019) a suspended mobile that echoes a cosmic array appearing above the heads of the viewer, and Our Life Mirrored by Two Suns: Kepler 16b (2018), a panoramic tapestry in the form of a three-metre-high enveloping circle.

From: 26 Feb 2020

Exiled on a remote mountainside in South America, the Monos are a group of teenage soldiers. Their job: to guard a single hostage.

A powerful, beautifully surreal film.

Perlee - Vinyl Party Show

From: 28 Feb 2020
To: 28 Feb 2020
A few years ago Saramai Leech and Cormac O’Keeffe settled in an out-of-the-way cottage on an estate a few miles out from their home town Navan, Co. Meath. They made a studio in their kitchen and when they left the door open the peahens and chickens would curiously make their way inside. During these years in the ‘middle of nowhere’ with feathered creatures and tall old trees, Perlee was born. Vocal harmonies, synths, strangely tuned and detuned reverberant guitars abound in a vast yet minimal sound.

To: 05 Mar 2020
Jason Byrne has had a hard year. But he doesn’t want to talk about that. He’s wrecked but ready. Ready for a laugh. This show is a celebration. A celebration of triumph over adversity. A celebration of the fact that everybody’d got their own crap going on and they don’t need to listen to someone else moaning about their problems. So, leave your worries at the door and find out why ‘The Times’ described Jason as ‘The Outright King of Live Comedy’.
