A Secret
Mar

to Mar 19

A Secret

Anonymous secrets, from adultery, elder abuse, shame and repression to hidden love and government secrets, become art as part of 'A Secret'. An exhibition of photographs that each artist has, up until now, intentionally kept hidden from public view. It presents the secret works of 25 artists, each revealing and uncovering one of their innermost secrets through a single image accompanied by a brief, explanatory statement. However, in a departure from the norm, all works will be presented anonymously.

[Safe + Sound]

“Guarding the innermost secrets of our data lives, both laudable and necessary, is one thing. 
The whole brouhaha over maintaining the chimera of our privacy, is another, 
and is as pointless and ludicrous as
building a sand castle to protect us against a tidal wave.”*

Curated by Steven Cavanagh

Artists: Damian Dillon, Sallwa Hourani, Glenn Lockitch, James Needham-Walker, Yul Scarf, Sandra Winkworth and Steven Cavanagh. 

Safety is a chimera, a mythological creature composed of many parts, the many different ways we employ to feel, and keep ourselves safe. If we are threatened by virtual danger, a beast with many heads, then we are also threatened with physical danger, we fear and dwell within a sort of paranoia, stuck in an inertia of inability.

Kittens and Sunsets

Artist - Steven Cavanagh

In our often-isolating society, joining others to mourn for a stranger helps people feel connected, part of a larger whole and a common cause. This was most dramatically seen after the death of Princess Diana in 1997, which was followed by the largest public expression of grief for a single death in history.

Danced to Guitars. - Daniel Grendon

Danced to Guitars is a photographic exhibition about people who belonged to a tight-knit tribe; a mini subculture that developed in an indie nightclub called ‘The Depot’. With themes of reflection, personal journeys and belonging it’s a story of the Depot Kids, as they reflect on that formative experience 10 years later.

FRASER CRICHTON – NO MORE LIES

I visited Istanbul in Turkey in 2013 shortly after the Gezi Park protests. The protests were initially sparked by the bulldozing of Gezi Park to make way for urban development. They went on to part be a diverse movement of people unhappy with an increasing autocratic and non-secular leadership. These photos are only a snapshot of a key point in time in Turkey’s history.

SERGIO LEYVA SEIGLIE | GANGA-LONGOBA

The Gangá-Longobá is a unique group of Afro-Cubans who live in Perico, a small town tucked away from Cuba’s tourist route. The group’s very distinctive ethnic heritage has been traced to an ancestor stolen from the Banta people in what is today Sierra Leone, who was then smuggled into Cuba and sold as a slave. In Cuba, she was given the name Josefa and toiled for decades on Santa Elena sugar plantation, just outside of Perico.
