Angus Braithwaite | A Home of Ghosts and Spirits

Cyprus : Angus Braithwaite | A Home of Ghosts and Spirits

Art Seen is delighted to announce that British artist Angus Braithwaite will present ‘A Home of Ghosts and Spirits’, his first solo exhibition outside of the UK opening on Friday the 12th of October at 19:00. The exhibition is curated by Maria Stathi and it will continue until the 24 of November.

For this new commission, Braithwaite has invited four Ghosts who inhabit constructed environments to spend six weeks in the Nicosia gallery.

This is the first time these haunted artworks can been seen together. Interestingly, each work of art has taken a different journey to the gallery – be that through the postal system, as a relations’ hand–luggage or by boat.

Although similar in construction and aesthetic, each opened box has its own logic of display, thus activating and encouraging the spirits living within them to perform.

The works have a physical and intellectual dialogue with one another. The oscillating theatrical lighting of one, affects the shadows on another. The soundscape composed to placate the ghost within a different work, drifts through the gallery confusing, or sometimes informing, the others.

Alongside these international deceased guests, Braithwaite has punctuated the gallery with another sort of spirit. Continuing his fascination with wood as a material and the power of trees in Western mythology, Braithwaite will present his Dryad series, small, self–contained temples and tombs, constructed for the Ancient Greek tradition of tree spirits.

**In conjunction with the show the artist will present a performance on Wednesday the 17th of October 2018 at 18:30.
