Opening: Friday 23 March, 6-8pm

It’s Like That was a consideration on the flexibility and relationships between the Copy, Allegory Translation, Time, Space and Thought. Dispelling the notion that the copy is not an original, 'an artefact without archeology' this new project followed the way in which the lives and afterlives of the ‘original’ emerges, evolves and mutates through time and space. The project tracked the artistic process through a mediation on thought and memory, taking the extracted pages of a diary and year planner as the material basis upon which time itself is both planned, allocated and spent. Through their punctuation, these pages became both a testament of the passing of time and reflect the passing of light through them as objects, simultaneously recording and erasing transcripts of thought.
