I the thing in the margins
A shadow-self hidden within the other
I am the noise in the signal
A parasitic oscillation
Beyond representation
The site of horror

I, the Thing in the Margins is a solo exhibition of new works by Mark Peter Wright. Across sculptural assemblage, sound and image, Wright interrogates media histories and tropes found within Nature documentary and para-crypto contexts: re-imagining the traditionally silent or lone recordist as a chimeric identity assembled within the margins of representation.

Through a series of [super] mutations and metamorphoses the exhibition radically examines the mediated impact humans have had upon non-human species and phenomena, and more importantly asks what it means to confront those very (in)human(e) histories and actions: to listen back to one’s other, in self-revelatory horror.
