Curated by Bakul Patki
Seana Gavin is a London-based artist working primarily in the medium of collage. She overlays and conjoins distinct images drawn from vintage photographic material to create otherworldly scenes, transforming them into dreamlike environments where the past and future coexist. She is also known for her photographic work, documenting her time involved in the free party rave movement during the 1990s.
