Produced for the BACKLIT 10th Anniversary exhibition Same As It Never Was, ‘The Manifestation’ reinterprets the memory of BACKLITs removal from its original premises on Dakeyne Street to its current home at Alfred House through the therapeutic method of psychodrama. In a group session lead by a suspect psychotherapist, we travel back to Matthew Chesneys encounter with a mysterious stranger at Vorgon Media, after which, BACKLIT is found to contain asbestos and is closed down by the local Council. Has Matthew manifested the asbestos with his mind? Is it conscious? And can BACKLIT remain inextinguishable like this fire retardant safety hazard?
