Silent Spaces

Curators: Rhonda Davis and Leonard Janiszewski
Consultant: Peter Fay

'What cannot be spoken is the space between visible and invisible, and public and private.'

Silent spaces existing in-between have been, and continue to be, the source of inspiration for many artists, philosophers, writers and scientists, whose work has relied upon its sustaining effects - to gather, ponder and think. Creative spaces are silent, they promise to liberate the mind and senses for reflection reaching towards new understandings. This exhibition will explore the intensity of silence in its various forms - silence as integral to healing, power and an understanding of the human condition and its relationship with nature. Furthermore, Silent Spaces will explore the mordant effects of the political silences that continue to hinder our society. Artists involved in the exhibition will be detailing silence through a variety of mediums and techniques evidencing the creative process between the unspoken and the known.
