absəns prezəns

Presence of past histories permeate our space through their absence.

Unlived lives are explored, re-imagined and re-presented.

This exhibition is informed by social geographies that map historical experiences

and of topographies which shape our social being. It explores the wilderness of

past and present, of art and theory, of word and image, to make forms that are

also at the beginning of a new significance.

When I lie where shades of darkness

Shall no more assail mine eyes,

Nor the rain make lamentation

When the wind sighs;

How will fare the world whose wonder

Was the very proof of me?

Memory fades, must the remembered

Perishing be?
