Threads is a showing of new multimedia work by Amber Goodwyn and Anita Schoepp, two friends, co-workers and collaborators. Concerned with the excavation of buried parts of the individual's identity, both artists pose searching questions and offer playful ruminations with their art practices.

Amber Goodwyn's work begins with her family photographs and history and ends with work that is a reflection of interior life, personal mythology and self-fictionalization. Focusing on images of her mother, Amber has created a series of mixed-media portraits and landscapes that reinterpret her memory of growing up in the Bahamas.

It Started with a Simple Question is an immersive video installation by Anita Schoepp wherein twenty-one different people performed their answer to the question 'how would you personify your sexuality?' The installation serves to examine how we approach sexuality, whether we use to seek out sex or if it has a broader emotive influence on how we interact with ourselves, others and shared spaces.

Hope to see you there!
