Is seeing believing? What lies in the space between light and shadow, between presence and absence? Mrtvolka (“little corpse”) travels the border between the mediated and the live. Utilizing techniques from the multimedia spectacles of the phantasmagoria of the 19th century, Sneppova and Kemp present a shadowy world.
