email@example.com 5 minutes walk from Farringdon/Chancery Lane Underground Palimpsests and left-over traces can be glimpsed every day, particularly in a city: pieces of time left hanging. SHADOW LINES features the work of three artists who source the material presence of past fragments.
Maya Ramsay works with buildings due to be demolished or renovated. She is currently working at Bletchley Park in the huts used by the code-breakers. Ramsay has developed a process of lifting pigment, debris and the texture of surfaces to create a kind of epidermis. These are presented on the wall but they are simultaneously archaeological documents. Their titles, which refer to military conflicts and death tolls, suggest a political undertow in Ramsay’s presentation of rejected, left behind strata.
