Transient Residence
Gaia Persico

Gaia Persico shows a range of compelling drawings, animations and installation work as part of her continued investigation into tracing memory and place, using subtle, poignant and often amusing interpretations of the immediate world and how we connect with it. Drawn ‘snapshots’ of urban infrastructures are shown alongside those of her rural homeland in Sardinia. more >

Richard Monahan

The work utilises found and specifically produced and often highly crafted objects and images. more >
