It is between one o’clock in the morning and one o’clock in the morning and the road is bathed in a monochromatic yellow light. A steady beam pours out of a streetlamp into a puddle below. There are palm trees silhouetted against the night sky and it is hot and sticky outside. Down at the beach the waves of evening tide are spinning together a matted, hairy fog that tumbles ashore and begins to roll up the hill towards the hotel. Tangled wisps squeeze out drippings of brine as they slip through narrow holes in hedgerows and barbed wire fences. This mist, chalky with salt, brings with it a sensation of slow nausea until, wholly saturated, it swells up like a mushroom cloud and falls back swooning amid the deepening shades.
Like hotel residents separated by thin walls, the participants in this group exhibition are all alone together. Following divergent trajectories, works fill the recently emptied spaces of the Deer Park Hotel with visions of loss, physical residue, romance and indeterminacy, spilling into each other like television noise from the room next door.
