Absence vs Presence Group Exhibition, Curated by Mary George.

Absence Versus Presence looks at absence as a way to renegotiate presence.

The artists explore absence within memory, behavioural pattern, performance, preconception and deliberate physical withdrawal as an impetus to create presence.

In this light, absence or ignorance is not all together pervasive.

There is a promise,
if everything else fails,
absence could trigger 'change',
an opportunity to feel 'awake',
to create something 'new',
to assemble 'the whole'.
