> DESCRIPTION

This exhibition employs Alexandre Dumas’ classic adventure novel and its many screen based interpretations, to bring together the work of five artists; Annabel Dover, Cathy Lomax, Hayley Lock, Alex Pearl and Mimei Thompson.

Working in a range of disciplines and media, each plot their own responses to the overarching themes of betrayal, disguise, revenge and patience, mapping out a story of imagined objects, characters, conversations and relics.

This treasure-laden exhibition examines the playful space between reality and illusion, and charts voyages from the sublime to the ridiculous.

A publication will accompany the exhibition which includes previously unpublished chapters from Dumas’ original manuscript, recently discovered in the library archive of Wilmore House and translated by Paul Becker.
