In What’s Missing, Is Where Love Has Gone

An exhibition by Christopher Petit
Curated by Louisa Elderton and Jelena Seng

Eröffnung: Dienstag 14. März 2017, 18 – 21 Uhr

Decad’s exhibition programme in the new gallery space will commence with a solo exhibition of work by British filmmaker and writer Christopher Petit. Curated by Louisa Elderton and Jelena Seng, In What’s Missing, Is Where Love Has Gone takes as its centre point a hazy image of David Bowie, one in a series of image fragments captured by Petit from different television screens over a number of years. The exhibition is not just a reflection on the mass consumption of imagery today and the subsequent value of not showing, but a very personal response by Petit to the state of our contemporary world — one of bad political hair and blue skies turning to black.
