Irish visual artist Ursula Burke works in porcelain sculpture, embroidery and drawing.   A False Dawn is the culmination of Ursula’s recent work.  Much of her art practice deals with issues of representation and identity, exploring abuses of power in both social and political sphere.


Having worked for many years in Belfast, Ursula often takes a post-conflict Northern Irish context as a critical point of departure to approach international concerns.  This exhibition showcases beautiful artworks which act as a bridge to connect the Classical ‘ideal’ with the ‘reality’ of today’s world.

The exhibition has been co-curated in partnership with the Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris.
