About the artist:

Rita Duffy received her MA in Fine Art at the Ulster University in 1986. Her work, in which she uses a range of media, is often autobiographical and addresses subjects relating to Irish identity, history and politics. She has also commented that ‘women’s issues and feminism seem obvious and important concerns for me as an artist’.

In her piece 'Security Barrier', the dome of Belfast’s City Hall looms over a familiar sight during the Troubles. For a period of time, a series of security gates formed a ‘ring of steel’ around the city centre. People entering this zone were subjected to body searches and their belongings were checked. The work references themes of control, security and a siege mentality
