A solo exhibition presented by Minka Gillian. 

Chasing Magic delves into the intricate relationship between magical thinking, anxiety, and the pandemic and how unsettling events can trigger superstitious behaviours and belief in the supernatural.

Through sculpture, painting, and installation Gillian examines this phenomenon by harnessing the power of good luck charms, religious symbolism, and the sublime to create a series of paintings and an eclectic shrine with personal relics for visitors to contemplate and make a wish.

Chasing Magic is a reminder of the inevitability of death but also a token of hope, comfort and beauty amid a time of uncertainty.
