The lacuna, or lexical gap, represents a gap in translation, a place where multiple meanings are applied, where meanings shift and new interpretations can be made.

Building Days is a solo exhibition Matthew Benington.
The exhibition consists of an entire room of exposed, photosensitive paper depicting text describing an embarrassing narrative. Other works draw upon historical photographs, and the play between seriousness and humour, revealing the ways that patriarchal values have colored Matthew's family history. Childhood drawings and archival photographs have been excavated, scanned and transformed into images using intaglio etching and digital print.
A new film will be screened half way through the show.
