Presence of an absence aims to bring awareness to the loss of life at the hands of violence around the world - considering how domestic abuse, disappearances and murder of women affects us as a society whether happening locally or globally.
Video, photo, installation and participatory artworks by Mexican artists Georgianna C Ainsworth, Elina Chauvet, Brian Maguire, Mark McLoughlin, Francisco Cardoso & Carlos Castillan (from El Club Mini Venganzas), Rocio Sifuentes and Julio Ancira will share personal experiences of violence and loss, aiming to open up conversations about gender issues, corruption, identity, loss of life and survival.
Exhibition continues to mid July - see our website for opening times.
