Darkness Visible Opening

Come along to the opening event of this participatory installation by artist Sam Winston, which explores perception and the spoken word.

After spending a number of weeks in his studio, living and drawing in complete darkness, Sam Winston has created an immersive exhibition which allows you to experience the creative impact of darkness. Enjoy a glass of wine and experience a newly commissioned dark room which is completely covered in text that has been written by the artist during the creation of the installation.
