People who have saved this event:


Discover eight artists whose distinct material approaches raise questions of identity. Employing a wide range of media each artist fabricates their agency, leaving behind a ghost of a presence.


The idea that the artwork operating as an index of the absent author - can serve very different concerns that range from the socio-political to formal explorations that bridge analogue and digital realms. New bodies of work created for this show will demonstrate how each artist uses highly personalised sign systems to work with, against or around their chosen subject. The artworks and underlying themes of this exhibition will be supported via a catalogue essa by Sacha Craddock.

The following live events are planned:

  • Virtual reality experiences
  • Live performances
  • Two public workshops
  • Panel discussion

This event will be updated with more information in the future. All events will comply with the latest government guidance regardding the pandemic.
