Tracey Holland 
Magnetic Atlas

Sat 25 Aug - Extended to Fri 9 Nov
An Tobar Gallery
Opening Night Sat 25 Aug, 6-8pm. All welcome.

Tracey Holland works with photography, film and collage to create her site-specific installations.

On show at An Tobar is work taken from Magnetic Atlas (2014), including Ordinalia, a 12-screen film installation, Huldra, a 3-screen film and wall based photographic images, Charged Vessels & Infinite Bodies. This work continues investigations into the interplay between elements of physics, psychology, religion and myth, and draws upon stories from religious mystery plays like the Cornish 12th century Ordinalia and tales involving mythical figures such as the Huldra - tales of the visible and the invisible. These mythological miracles are contrasted with natural events and miraculous happenings that both inspire and reflect the myth.

The work investigates how mythic tale, the psychology of the antiquity and character work within the psyche providing insights for one another.
