Double Dropping on a Phantom Island Michaela Cullen & Declan Colquitt
Curation
The Newbridge Project, Gateshead, UK, 2018

Double Dropping on a Phantom Island was an exhibition and new colaborative work by artists Michaela Cullen and Declan Colquitt exploring ideas of recollection and the slippage of time through themes of Irish pilgrimage and Northern dance music. 

In an attempt to define place and identity, both artists moved backwards in time, locking into the inert temporalities of childhood, the suspended time of mythology and the acceleration of the recent past. These movements encompass remarks on delirium, displacement and lost futures.
