THE VISIBLE SECTION

  • The Coming evokes the panic of eschaton, the End of Times and the attendant Last Judgment, in subliminal reference to Baroque iconography and contemporary imaginaries of catastrophe.
  • Airport Walks revolves around apparently innocent pedestrian experiments (walking from big airport hubs to the centre of the city) but resonates with uneasy questions about the impact and future of human-powered flight.
  • Creaturely Mournfulness is charged with the lyrical and resigned gaze of the German philosopher Walter Benjamin.
