In Between Daylight

"In Between Daylight" is a site-specific installation that references ideas of danger, fear and risk taking in an environment that may be beautiful, disorienting and haunting all at the same time. The piece calls attention to what immigrants and refugees may experience while crossing treacherous political and geographical borders in forests, jungles and bodies of water across the world, filled with hope to reach an unpredictable future.

Unreality Bomb

“Unreality Bomb “ is a term first coined by Roger White in a seminal book on contemporary art titled The Contemporaries. White used this term to characterize a painting that had pieces deliberately removed from it, as a stylistic choice. White’s statement describes the work chosen for this exhibition; work that has an unseen layer removed from it by artificial and fictional means, to create an impression of space.
