Message or Further Details:

Focusing on deep primitive fears that humanity retains such as fear of the dark and a fear of the unknown; the artists have used film, textiles, painting and photography to create a claustrophobic environment; partially inspired by directors such as David Lynch and painters like Max Beckmann among others. This is an exploration into the rationalities or irrationalities of fear, mortality, the here-after and how our surroundings absorb and interact with these.
