About the Exhibition
GASLIGHTING is a group art exhibition showcasing the work of artists who have had direct experience of domestic abuse. The result is a selection of personal work on this theme that includes photography, film, animation, performance, poetry and painting. Each artist's perspective is unique, and the creative strategies used vary—some projects are on-going, some are part of a trilogy of expression, others are one-offs—yet the role of abusive power and control in the domestic context is central and is shared.
