Belfast Exposed is delighted to present, A New Refutation of the Viking 4 Space Mission by Peter Mitchell, the first major solo exhibition of the British colour documentary photographer on the island of Ireland.
Unfamiliar Familiarities, this year’s annual Stage 3 Exhibition, is in response to Peter Mitchell’s series 'A New Refutation of the Viking 4 Space Mission', which follows the concept that “an alien has landed from Mars and is wandering around Leeds with a degree of surprise and puzzlement”.
“All is not well in Rottingham! The wicked Sheriff is growing rich on the many taxes he is forcing the poor townsfolk to pay and he is just about to become even richer.
Pip and Penny, recently orphaned and heirs to vast fortunes have been entrusted into his care and he is hatching a horrible plan to make sure that he will inherit the cash and marry Maid Marion, into the bargain.
All that stands in his way is the very brave and dashing Robin Hood and his Merry Men, the fearsome Nanny Coddle, brainless Dave Knave (the wannabe outlaw) and a rather overworked Fairy.
Will they succeed in thwarting the evil plot and beat the Sheriff and his villainous henchmen?”
