Exploring trauma and the artistic process

Nov 26th, 2014 at 7 -9 pm

Coalescence: A Body of Memories unites the work of  Kelly Gough and Osvaldo Ramirez Castillo, whose work centres on post-war narratives, addressing issues of collective and personal memory, violence and the impacts of trauma. Approaching these ideas from their unique perspectives and through the use of different mediums, these artists bring together a striking body of work including sculptural installations and detailed multi-media drawings.
