In the Shadow of Paradise is an exhibition bringing together work by three contemporary artists with roots in Scarborough – Annie Onyi Cheung, Anique J Jordan, and Deirdre Logue.
The opening reception will feature a participatory performance by Annie Onyi Cheung, presented as part of her “cable knots” series. Visitors are invited to bring their old electronics cables and engage in a collective knot tying process with the artist.
