Robyn Stacey: Nothing to see here

3rd - 21st March

Jan Manton Gallery

Jan Manton Gallery is pleased to present Robyn Stacey’s exhibition Nothing to see here showing from 3 March – 21 March. The exhibition will present a series of photographs and lenticular images.

Made by projecting film onto a curtain, the works are as much about the curtain as they are about light and colour. ‘To draw a curtain’ can mean two apparently contradictory things: to pull it aside to reveal what it had concealed, and to pull it in front of an object, in order to hide it. A dynamic of concealment and revelation. The curtain is at once what must be withdrawn to see the truth; and what must be looked at to reveal it.

Essay writer Chloé Wolifson states: ‘For photographic artist Robyn Stacey, the curtain is a device designed to impart neutrality, yet nonetheless hangs heavy with resonance. This makes it the ideal subject for a pure exploration of light and colour while opening up possibilities beyond the visual.’
