Disappearing Acts

Layout 1


Operating on the threshold of visibility it offers subtle readings of the body, movement that disappears into the shadows or slips through unseen gaps in the curtains leaving lingering traces on the retina. Evocative images, stories and wry humour give voice to our experiences of disappearance, night-time and politically ‘dark times’.
