Between the Click of the Light and the Start of the Dream
"Continuing his interest in fan interventions into pop culture, Dyment uses found imagery, found materials and found methodologies to explore fictions-within-fictions, meta-narratives and collective confabulation. From readymades to painstakingly researched works, the exhibition includes books, records and DVDs (a two-hundred hour video), which examine in-between times and altered states." - gallery press release
