Invoking Absence [curator]

Brien, P (2021) Invoking Absence [curator]. Hallidays Mill Gallery, Chalford, UK, 3 - 26 September 2021.

Item Type: Exhibition
Creators: Brien, P
Abstract: This exhibition considers the entanglements of geological timescales and mineral layers, landscapes, waters and the invisible beings of place within a cycle of deep and neoteric time. It refers to contemporary animist narratives which acknowledge and learn from the complex interrelationality of ‘indigenous thinking’ (Yunkaporta) to re-interpret and expand upon ancient and contemporary Western pagan ‘thinking’ (Graham Harvey, Pegi Eyers). Obfuscated by time and linear narratives of colonial-capitalist progress, the entities and agents of place - water, mineral and deity - hold simultaneously past, present and future worldings.
