I Am What You’ve Come To See

Void Gallery, Derry

5th September – 1 November 2019

I Am What You’ve Come To See is a solo exhibition of work by Sonia Shiel currently on view at Void Gallery, Derry.

In all works of fiction there belies an agreement that the reader/the viewer will allow for a suspension of disbelief. For I Am What You’ve Come To See, Sonia Shiel has transformed the three gallery spaces into a circular narrative, casting the audience as its central protagonist.

The viewer is compelled to move through the galleries by a series of scripted audio-visual instructions, strategic objects and obtuse props that feign seemingly ungovernable chances – in a shapeshifting journey that is entirely staged.
