For their third show, Aedas Presents shows the work of Jo Gane. She has assembled a body of work made with teams of field archaeologists at various digs. The resulting work explores the search for evidence of history and plotting of time within the landscape. Instead of unearthing finds, the archaeologists spend time chasing shadows and mapping out past events.
The installation for Aedas Presents will include both photographs of archaeological constructions and projections of shadows. ‘The photographs act to give the shadows a physical reference point and will describe the functioning of time as a mapped spatial dimension, whilst the shadows will describe the unknown historic events that occurred within these sites.’
The show opens on Thursday 10 February. The private view is from 6-8pm. Shadow Maps will be displayed in Colmore Plaza until Friday 18 February. Contact aedaspresents[at]aedas.com to arrange a visit.
