My Life In A Bag

Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights reads “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services.” A new mural in Lower North Street aims to raise awareness of homelessness and encourage resource investment and policy development. The mural was developed by Leonard Cheshire’s Can Do Project (web), Westcourt Centre (web), and Blaze FX graffiti company (Fb), with residents from Rose Mount House (Fb) and young people from Belfast Met.

Valar Morghulis

Dublin art collective subset (ig | twweb) has been battling Dublin County Council over the permissions process for street art in the city since the council ordered the removal of its 2017 mural of rapper Stormzy in December of that year (RTÉ). The ongoing protests currently take the form of the group’s Grey Area Project (video | Huck).
Here are the first two panels (of six) of their their ‘Valar Morghulis‘ piece in Lower Donegall Street when some members came north for CNBX/HTN18 in September. The first piece replaces Lisa Murphy’s 2017 CNB piece, which we called Ecstasy. The second is by weaks (ig).

The Devil’s Bagpipes

In this grotesque image, a monk’s head serves as an instrument of the devil – a Reformation criticism of the Catholic church. The woodcut dates to c. 1530. The ogham script in the bottom pair of posters, which reads “Fucc [sic – there is no “k”] the DUP”, is not included in the original (British Museum). The modern reinterpretation is by TLO (ornamentalhermit.org). The ogham on the devil’s arm is unclear; it appears to read “cussfbelung” – comment if you can help.
