Ullans Academy Feast Day of Columbanus Celebration
Presentation of "We are all one piece of the peace" artworks to President Mary McAleese & Lord Bannside (Ian Paisley)
The Ullans Academy commissioned Ian Fleming from Creative Exchange Artist Studios to produce an artwork to be presented to The President & Lord Bannside on 23.11.10
"Creative Exchange Director and local artist Ian Fleming was commissioned to produce a piece of art to give to the two special guest speakers. At first refusing to produce two copies of the same work, he instead created two interlocking jigsaw pieces that can be lifted out of their frames and locked together. Columbanus means “white dove” and it’s present on the two pieces, locked in a cage of “decommissioned” barbed wire. The Belfast Lough coastline and Bangor are also represented on both parts of the jigsaw."
