Burke's porcelain sculpture and embroidery are inspired by the complex cultural landscape of Belfast since the Belfast Agreement.

The flag protest, protagonists with conflicting interests and common culture are are key themes in this provocative exhibition of Burke's work.

Concerned with issues of representation and identity in contemporary Ireland, her sculptures in particular are layered with historical references, combining elements of the surreal with the dark and humorous.

The artist subverts the artistic conventions usually associated with mediums such as porcelain or embroidery by using them to reference socio-political concerns.
