An exhibition of eclectic artwork from film, sound, sculpture and drawing.

Our everyday
lives and domestic spaces support an ontology of difference, where life and
matter are temporal and durational entanglements between humans and nonhumans
exist in a constant flow of becoming. ‘Duration’ supports this transformation
through a process of undoing and redoing, unravelling and making. Located in duration,
this work focuses the nocturnal behaviour of creatures living in paradoxical
spaces between the wild and the domestic - between notions of re-wilding and
the destruction of ‘pests’, where the domain of molluscs and insects are
extraordinary and fantastical worlds.

For Elizabeth
Grosz (2011), duration is the field in which difference lives and plays itself
out – the domain of becoming. ‘
Duration
is that which undoes, as well as makes. This unbecoming is the very motor of
becoming. The work tests this concept of duration through a multiplicity of
speeds, intensities, trajectories and sensations. The viewer is invited to
become caught up in this alternative duration that has capacity to lure us into
a web of becoming.
