Thomas Pausz: Haunted Ecologies

Onsite: 25 April – 13 July 2024

Launch Event: Wednesday 24 April 6 – 8pm, All Welcome!

Thomas Pausz' solo show Haunted Ecologies intersects the research fields of media, ecology, and 'hauntology' – the understanding that our perception of contemporary environment and culture is always haunted by spectres of the past, and by hopes and visions of the future – to propose an immersive installation echoing the transformations of local ecosystems in the vicinity of Stanley Picker Gallery.

The exhibition will present a collection of works inspired by the ecology of the Hogsmill river. Stanley Picker Gallery is situated on an island on the Hogsmill, a tributary to the Thames. The ecology of this chalk stream is increasingly endangered due to excessive extraction of water and increasing sewer discharge, which change the nutrient level of the water as well as introduce polluting substances. The installation echoes the transformations of the river over time, and traces how from Millais' Ophelia painting and Muybridge's landscape photography to contemporary digital image making techniques, the media constellations we design evolve with and change our perception of the ecosystem.

Thursday 25 April 2-4pm | Free, All Welcome!
