Catharsis – a new group exhibition which brings together three projects by contemporary photographers who use portraiture in innovative ways to explore and come to terms with complex family or personal histories.  Employing different strategies, each artist uses photography as a means to unravel or respond to a repressed narrative around personal identity.  Through the process of creative investigation they open a broader dialogue around the constraints that societal norms can impose upon the freedom of individual expression.
