Things disappear.  Might they ever reappear?  Will we forget?

ON VANISHING is an exhibition that explores the transient, the temporal, the decaying, the faded, perhaps lost, elements of life.  It features the work of three recent graduate artists and their experiments with lens based media.  Their works share a playfully unsettling attitude towards space, time and experience.  They quietly demand attention.

Alex Brunt combines processed then reprocessed appropriated photographs of places with disturbing histories with an elusive use of text.  Nadine Castleman’s expansive practice traverses sculpture and film, treading a fine line between objective and subjective worlds.  Whilst Alexandra Hughes, by combining photography, sculpture and film, invokes a spirit of subdued, contemplative silence – delicately site-specific, subtly layered, quietly shifting.




The SHED is part of the Whistle Art Stop in Haltwhistle and is an exhibition and project space dedicated to showcasing the work of new and emerging artists from across the North East of England.
