Lost and contested histories are reconstructed—crates inhabit the space, marking a sense of mobility, both revealing and obscuring work.

A set of scores for a performance not yet completed—notebooks hold text in multiple languages, slowly breaking down, becoming abstract markers.

‘…the obtrusive presence of an absence…’ is a an exhibition bringing together new work by Neil Clements & Irina Gheorghe. Working across installation, painting and performance and united by long-term negotiations of histories, times and places—the exhibition is animated by fundamental questions of what is there and maybe more importantly what is not.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue featuring a conversation between the artists and the curator Benjamin Fallon, and a newly commissioned text from philosopher Alexi Kukuljevic. The publication will be launched at the finnissage on the 20th January alongside a new performance by Irina Gheorghe.
