Quiet and Still

11 - 23 November 2011

Can we experience true stillness and quietness in a society where we are constantly reminded that we are not alone, when radio waves, bluetooth and phone networks hum in our ears? The exhibition aims to rediscover the 'Nietschean moment' in modern times.

"Being is not a steady state but an occulting one: we are all of us a succession of stillness blurring into motion on the wheel of action, and it is in those spaces of black between the pictures that we find the heart of mystery in which we are never allowed to rest."

Russell Hoban
