Talia Smith and Zainab Hik­met unite in this ex­hi­bi­tion, in which their time-based prac­tices ex­plore the feel­ing of long­ing for a mo­ment or place. Both artists cre­ate per­sonal works that ref­er­ence the past, present and pos­si­ble fu­ture, with ‘light’ as a guid­ing medium and em­blem be­cause of its po­ten­tial to con­vey fleet­ing en­ergy. The tem­po­ral qual­ity of light is the cor­ner­stone of this show which stages ‘op­po­si­tional struc­tures to meet; the pass­ing of time and me­mory, the spa­ces be­tween, and the grow­ing dis­tance nat­u­rally cre­ated be­tween peo­ple.’
