Constructed from recycled timber and fabric blinds sourced and on loan from Plymouth’s Scrap Store. This folly acted as a functional space that reduced the light levels in gallery for projecting the film ‘The Belief in Things Disappearing’. The dimensions of the blinds and architecture of the gallery dictated the form of the structure. The selected green fabrics make subtle reference to green screens which are used in film and TV to make objects disappear, whilst also linking to one of the main environments within the film, the woodland. The use of blinds playfully adds to themes of disappearance and things that are kept hidden from view.
‘The Belief In Things Disappearing’ was a solo exhibition at MIRROR in Plymouth. This artwork was part of the exhibition which previewed new film works, drawings and sculptures. To see full documentation of the show please visit
