26 June – 13 July 2019
PALFREY presents The Taciturn Moth, a solo exhibition by Benjamin Brett. Evoking frameworks of a narrative deprived of a protagonist, The Taciturn Moth is an installation that incorporates painting, sculpture and audio. The work poses a variety of placeholders to insinuate and investigate the presence of something that isn’t there, in a manner reminiscent of the ghost stories of M. R. James or plot devices characteristic of crime fiction.
OPENING Wednesday 26 June 2019, 6 – 8 pm
Benjamin Brett attended the RU residency programme New York in 2017, studied painting at the Royal College of Art, London in 2013 and was a committee member of OUTPOST gallery, Norwich.
