The exhibition is a depictive expression of personal experiences through art. The exhibition space is approached with the language of post conceptual art. The element that binds all the works together is the cinematographic notion of ‘fade in / fade out’. Through this concept the artist is exploring the diminishing of images to the point of nothingness. Looking at the fleeting nature of images and he finds that light has a dark side.
