Imaging, a visual representation of a material form, is a diagnostic outcome for further investigation, a point of simultaneous arrivals and departures. The photograph and the moving image extend into narratives of fiction, storytelling, weaving, embroidery and adopt derivative forms in various mediums through the works of the artists in this exhibition.


The form and formlessness of the image, the truth of a photograph and the residual void of spaces linger as arrival points for an audience to then depart from the work with layers of their memories and readings. While thinking in images, one arrives at a language outside of the images as a way of interpretation, description, disintegration and creation. Through this process, the image morphs into further interpretations, similar to the transitions that takes place with new readings of archives, family albums, news and research. The image becomes fluid in form and it is then that one arrives at imaging to create way for an imagination of departures. The conception of the image becomes circular but its form morphs with time, its meanings evolve with interpretation and new narratives keep the process of image making alive through materiality and memory.
