About the Exhibition

Inspired by the tragic love story of Orpheus and Eurydice, Marie Bannerot Mclnerney’s experiential installation Trace Me Back speaks to ideas of impermanence, loss, and those fleeting moments that cannot be undone. Her artistic practice mines recorded histories, ancient mythologies, and natural phenomena to meditate on the relationships between bodies and space, present and past, and perception and position.
