Jayne Anita SmithCurator, Project manager
Situated between consciousness and dream, the fractured fragments of another world float on the marginal spaces of our being. Delicately intertwined the organic writhing forms hide a deadly beauty that embalms the inhabitants in its cancerous growth. Suspended by the threads of their past failures and repressed memories, they cast the shadows of their own destruction, referencing J G Ballards's tthe castaways dystopic existence in Vermillion Sands.
