CAUTION brings together six artists from around the world to work on a series of solo and collaborative performances, video works, still images and installations.

Led by Belfast-based artist and curator Sinéad O’Donnell, CAUTION artists Sylvette Babin, Mariel Carranza, Paul Couillard, Poshya Kakl and Shiro Masuyama are re-framing their artistic identities within an ongoing discourse about invisible disability.

During 2011, Sinéad visited each artist and worked with them to produce material that explored their identity. Each artist built upon ideas generated by the previous encounters and journeys, creating a catalyst for the progression of the work.

navigates between the national and international, the personal and political, the structured and the shattered, uncovering how we are shaped by the cultural codes and environments that we inhabit.

The artists will gather in Belfast for an exhibition at the Golden Thread Gallery as part of the London 2012 Festival and some of the work will travel to London as part of the Unlimited Festival at the Southbank Centre.

A CAUTION book is availble for £5, this publication details the creative journey experienced by lead artist and curator Sinéad O’Donnell with the participating artists Sylvette Babin, Mariel Carranza, Paul Couillard, Poshya Kakil and Shiro Masuyama. For this publication, each artist was invited to contextualise their experience of a project that aimed to re-examine their art practices and personal ideologies. Additional perspectives are provided by the project mentors Aaron Williamson and Boris Nieslony.

The book is published by Artsadmin to coincide with the opening of the exhibition CAUTION at Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast from 23 August to 29 September 2012.
