Passage; Install shot: Curated by Julie Bentley

Works presented engage New-Materialist propositions, that displace our preoccupation with the centrality of human agency and the determinations of language, and invite us to consider the affective character of the worlds in which we are enmeshed. What arise, are propositions of ways of reading and viewing that are attuned to emergence and loss in an attempt to find ways to communicate what is absolutely essential, but escapes definition.

Deeds and Sufferings of Light, 2019

The title invokes Goethe’s alluring quote in which “colours are the deeds and sufferings of light” - inspiring a spectrum of book covers painted with non lightfast inks. We encounter the work as an alignment of book spines, dulled and faded from exposure. But upon closer inspection a tacit proposition of charged encounters appears and the covers facing one-another reveal their true colours. Glowing in intimate blushes, or clashing in up-front confrontations, they yield their bright intensities.
