Psychopomp is an exhibition that brings together a selection of works by artists Jennifer Bornstein, Mark Leckey, and Tala Madani. Psychopomp focuses on works that present narratives of bodies exploring their tenuous subjectivity through the spaces and objects that surround them. The figure is represented repeatedly though the manner of representation- hand-painted animation, digital imaging, 16 mm film and photography- makes each account distinct as corporal entities. Each work is further explicated by its presentation within sculptural structures that mediate the experience of the work in real space.
