Casey Ayres: Tunc - Art Collector

Tunc - a clipping from a Latin phrase meaning then and a pointed anagram - continues Casey Ayres's investigation into beauty and mythology, extending his photographic practice into a series of repurposed, sculptural props. Ayres draws an uneasy line between autobiography and fiction, altering and documenting his immediate surroundings as a set for a heightened, cinematic narrative that follows a decline into barley controlled violence and dangerous nostalgia.
