Open for public viewing between 11am and 3pm until 4th August 2012.
Commissioned by Golden Thread Gallery & the London 2012 Festival on behalf of Draw Down the Walls. 
 The project is an official event of the London 2012 Festival in Northern Ireland.
Golden Thread Gallery has commissioned Oscar Muñoz, an internationally renowned artist from Colombia, to create a temporary public intervention within one of Belfast’s most contentious interfaces.  Oscar Muñoz’s work explores universal themes of memory, human loss and impermanence.
In February 2012, Muñoz’s was invited to visit Belfast and meet communities from both sides of the interfaces.  As a response to this visit he developed Ambulatorio, a site specific installation using aerial maps of North Belfast sealed under a layer of cracked glass.  Ambulatorio was initially created using aerial photography of Cali in Colombia.  In Ambulatorio Belfast, he transforms the ‘no man’s land’ between the two barriers that separate the Crumlin Road and Flax Street.  His experience of working in another conflict zone puts the local into an international context, providing a unique window of opportunity to spotlight the relationships that are being built between historically divided communities as we move towards more hopeful times.
