Incantation is an exhibition inspired by themes around death, rebirth, winter, and ritual. For centuries, artists have been captured by the seductive mystery of mysticism and the occult. The subject lends itself wholly to the dead of winter – a deeply symbolic time of renewal, introspection, and the first stirrings of life hinting at a far-off spring. As our Northern days still acquiesce to long winter nights, there is yet time for a multitude of rites, incantations, divination, and portends. Throughout these stories the depths of our desire, both beautiful and terrible, manifest.

Opening January 8th 6-9pm in our Upstairs Gallery:
Mark Mitchell “Follies”

Rising star Mark Mitchell’s installation investigates ideas that he says insisted on being made between his ambitious large scale museum projects. “Follies” was inspired by the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, and the long-term AIDS presence and survival in the gay community. For “Follies”, Mitchell presents three unique garments made from edgy kitsch prints of pills and medication labels, sewn to resemble mass-manufactured prêt-à-porter. In addition, Mitchell has created “Madame Recamier d’Betsey”; an ode to Surrealist René Magritte’s bronze “Madame. Recamier d’David” in a pop-art inspired daisy slipcover.
