Dreaming of Dead Fish, 2018

Warrington Museum & Art Gallery  Open 29th September – 27th October 2018. Wednesday – Saturday 12-4



Dreaming of Dead Fish is an exhibition of newly commissioned artworks informed by research in Warrington Museum & Art Gallery stores and archives.

The exhibition presents un-accessioned items in the museum collection alongside glass, soot, and slide film and projection.

Encounters and conversations with the collection led Leighton-Boyce to explore themes of visibility and reflection in her research and studio practice.

These themes are translated through the relationship between the works and their considered display within the gallery environment. The materials and processes chosen act like a series of extended moments and pauses; they attest to the fragility of experience.

Accompanying the exhibition is a newly commission essay by Dr. Craig Staff.
