> DESCRIPTION

séance ( /ˈseɪ.ɑːns/) is an attempt to communicate with spirits. 

The purpose of a séance is to speak with the dead. It is, in part, an attempt to make the past present, a refusal to accept that the gulf between now and then is unbridgeable. The séance argues that the past is never really gone but is always present with us. In other words, to invoke the space of the séance is to open up a complex relation to history and time.” --Medium Essay by Matthew Brower 2007.

The artists in this show act as mediums who attempt to bridge gaps that the artists themselves perceive between the seen and unseen.
