If you’ve seen it you haven’t seen it- Liberty Festival
1 September 2023 - 3 September 2023
An audio guide leads its listener through a series of images. A character in itself – the guide takes on the role of an unreliable narrator with a shifting tone: at times direct, at points abstractly poetic, and sometimes reflective. These inconsistencies and fluctuations in approach conjure up questions around the ways in which our eyes and our minds often sit at odds with each other – does the audio match up with what our own vision makes of the photographs? How many ways can an image be read? Is seeing really believing or is the old adage flawed?
From “the massive quiet” to the domestic details, Renton renders strange, wonderful and questionable something most of us experience to varying degrees each day; looking. She has woven artworks across different senses which exist as both challenges and invitations, all with an edge that feels manageable. – Elspeth Wilson, Disability Arts Online
