Haunting presents the work of Brian Fuata, Geo Wyeth, Laboria Cuboniks, and Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz. Taking the figure of the ‘ghost’ as it’s starting point, Haunting explores the way in which artists are using materials and narratives of the past to create ‘a world in vertigo’ (1) , producing radical temporal shifts that conflate the past, present, and future. This project traverses live performance, screen-based work, and collaborative practices.
