Between shadows, shadows.

Katharine Paisley, Performance Art, March 2022.
Exhibited at Platform Arts, Belfast as part of ‘Control Room’.

In her first experimentation with performance art, 'Between shadows, shadows.' Paisley takes influence from Plato's allegory of the cave; in which a shadow represents a fake truth or an illusion of reality. Using charcoal, water and tempera paint, she tries to outline or contain her shadow. An attempt to cement or control her reality, which is not and cannot be achieved.
