Images 25 - Opening Gala & John Akomfrah


I'm a few days late with this post, but with good reason. This weekend is my Easter celebration, as my family follows the European Orthodox calendar, and I've just completed my final essay for my fourth year of university. How coincidental that I would be writing a paper on the alterity of perceptual space in the structuralist works of Vincent Grenier and Peter Gidal at the same time the Images Festival kicks off. It's a pleasant surprise, and it has certainly gotten me in the mood for some Avant-Garde experimental works.
