Lucreccia Quintanilla Rhythmic tracesOpening: Wednesday 19 October, 6-8pm Dates: 19 October-5 November 2016
‘Rhythmic traces’ seeks to find that moment where memory and sound meet and how they may play out in our psyche. This exhibition will be looking at sound outside of a self-reflexive space and exploring it in the context of image and sculpture within a fragile installation. Within this environment all these aspects interact in ways that conjure cultural and personal memory.
