A dual exhibition featuring new works by Moore and Maiye coming together to question one of mankind’s most intriguing concepts – time. They do this through the interrogation of the process of story-making that creates what is known as the ‘past’.

They question invisibility and malleability as it relates to time, drawing a link to ancestral memory and instinctive language as they explore a range of mediums and techniques which feel both new and familiar. Through this collaborative exhibition, they aim to create imaginative work as a means of recovering suppressed histories, through an understanding of the practices of generations preceding them.

Through various conversations around their practices and by drawing inspiration from literature such as the invisible man and David Hammons: Rousing the Rubble, both artists go on to question the idea of being a muse, through the lens of the influence each has on the other in the making of works for the exhibition.
