Remarks explore the theme of 'Grey Matters'.
The artists respond according to their own particular concerns and pre-occupations: phobias, assumptions about age, the fickle nature of memory, questions surrounding change and nostalgia, the experience of impairment. Media include photography, papier mâché, painting, drawing, and textile.
'Palimpsest' - Online Exhibition
An online art exhibition exploring the theme of memory. Where the metaphor of palimpsest, a manuscript in which old writing has been rubbed out to make room for new, runs through the different artists' works. The artists make extensive use of animation to re-write the 'manuscript' before your eyes.
