Echo at Pyramid Arts Centre, Warrington 29 September 2017 — 27 January 2018 Entrance is free

Part of Warrington Contemporary Arts FestivalEcho is a new site-specific installation by Holly Rowan Hesson that explores uncertainty, transience and the gap between purely sensory feeling and experience and more literal, rational thought-based experience and memory. The projection and sculptural work creates dialogues with materials, memory and the physical space, and will be added to throughout the exhibition.
