This event has now passed.

Sylvian Terret's exhibition explores the nature of freedom in the urban environment. Where the natural world and the city used to be opposites, Terret sees similarities between the two and teases out the points where they intersect becoming playgrounds for city dwellers.

Looking into the cityscapes for freedom in the unknown, usually attributed to the wilderness and open spaces, he turns this notion on its head and looks at how the city can become a source of boundless exploration. This change in perspective is what Terret is trying to bring to the forefront of his audience's minds, helping them to discover themselves through the shifting nature of the city.

His photos usually show only one or two subjects removed from the main action of the city, experimenting with movement and what it means to live in a metropolis.
