ERASURE
MAZIE TURNER | DAN NELSON | ANNEMARIE MURLAND | KATRINA HOLDEN

Erasure is never simply a matter of making things disappear: there is always a remainder that comes about in the aftermath, some mark on the surface from which a word or image or note has been removed. Whether crossed out, written-over or rubbed away, the forsaken item has a habit of returning, like a spectre: if only in the marks that assume its place and assert
its passing.

Please join us for the opening and performances Tuesday 6 August from 7:30pm.
Pianist Jacob Neale and bassist Jarrod Gibson will play Jazz in response to the artist’s work and the theme of erasure.
