3 FEBRUARY – 9 FEBRUARY 2020
Artist Lucas Davidson will take up residency at The Lock-Up to install his site specific solo exhibition LIVING WITH UNCERTAINTY. This exhibition will present a series of new installations that aim to disrupt the traditional subject-object relationship within the viewing experience. LIVING WITH UNCERTAINTY is an exhibition that causes viewers to question what they are actually seeing. The temporal shifting qualities of the work offer a way to engage with prolonged attention and contemplation, skills that have been diminished in today’s accelerated hyper-connected world.
