Ellen Fairbairn, Amy Parker, Amber Wright
Opening: Wednesday 20 July, 6-8pm

what do feelings cling to
what catches on an edge
levels in a crevasse
sticks in a mind or is harboured in a body?
A gift means a gap between two people approaches the ambient and least tangible parts of our lived experience, rendering them visible. Our inner worlds are complex and at times incoherent. These works consider where such layered emotional states are held or absorbed, be it in a saved lock of hair, an empathic pet enacting their owners anxiety or a hospital bed.
