Present

these may (not) be places | JUNE 30 - AUGUST 27

Through print and illustration, these may (not) be places explores the concept of place – its depictions and abstractions. Place may be structure, expressed in the character of architecture or the clear textures of geography. But it is also, always, distant – the first idea of space, its memory, its secretive nature.

The exhibition invokes responses from artists working in print and illustration. Laura Bydlowska depicts the geological patterns that reveal slow, natural processes. Kathryn Shriver explores delicate and surreal illustrations tell narratives of mental space—feeling a place through the passage of time, ritual, and the intangible terms of thought. Alex Thompson’s engravings capture the architectural city, with the curious voyeurism of the photographer. Guillermo Trejo’s flags for non-existent states challenge the way a nation exists as both idea and land. Joani Tremblay playfully deconstructs place into graphic elements, commenting on dominant, globalised aesthetic tropes.
