“‘Why add to the vast electromagnetic slums of images?’ was Christopher Petit’s response when we first invited him to produce an exhibition, followed by ‘Perhaps I’ll have a no show.’ I said that could make for a tricky presentation — an empty gallery. Instead, he began investigating how to simultaneously show and not show by withholding and obscuring information using sound and vision. This exhibition reflects on our mass consumption of imagery today — the result of a digital revolution that relentlessly fires pictures into our eyes — and instead gives value to communicating through what’s missing.
