    Marabar Caves
    The Gus Fisher Gallery
    August – September 2017
    Organised by Victoria Wynne-Jones
    Photographs by Samuel Hartnett

    Dwelling
    Dwelling

    Marabar Caves was an exhibition that took its title from the caves featured in E.M. Forster’s 1924 novel 'Passage to India.' This is the first exhibition in a series of three entitled ‘Resources of the Social Imagination’ by Victoria Wynne-Jones, which will look at the relationships between narrative pleasure and contemporary art. Narratives that are cosmological, geological and mythical combine to describe a space that is highly sculptural, one that becomes psychosexual with the aid of a colonial gaze.

    Audio, ceramics, embroidery and exhibition design form a response to Forster's description of the caves. Areez Katki has investigated non-linguistic narrative techniques using synaesthesia and his applied arts textile practice. Devices designed to lean against and languish on have been constructed and embroidered upon for the exhibition.
