About the Exhibition: 

Like the big dipper with individual stars aligning into form, the works in Constellations create images using elemental forms of light - a beam traversing a pin-prick, an incandescent filament, or an exposed silver-halde particle. In Aubrey Reeves' video installation Dagbok (diary) and Ivan Jurakic's photo and sculptural installations Reclamation and Avatar, light coalesces into words, a photograph, an airplane, but in shifting your gaze they dissolve again into a galaxy of abstract flickerings. The works in this exhibition were inspired by Second World War archival materials that reveal a glimmer of personal wartime experience.
