re:encounter surveys the abyss of time’s passing and how the complete is never resolved. The group exhibition investigates impermanence through the potential found in revisiting finished ideas, in writing alternative narratives and in furnishing a place for the past. The temporality in each artist’s work underlines a need to mark the transitory or more importantly to mark one’s presence. We challenge perceptions of the past, allow viewers to influence and retell, play with the tension between deception and actuality, fiction and fact, and harness ghostly bodies that once existed, exist momentarily or never existed at all.
