The exhibition examines the window as a liminal surface; both the surface of the projection screen and the space it enframes. The videos offer a fractured surface where the ‘sutures’ between multiple temporalities are left visible. The works explore a visuality where simultaneity rather than sequentiality is foregrounded – multiple fragments of the past anamnetically inscribed into the present.
