Gallery Hours: Tuesday to Saturday from 11am to 4pm.

This series of photographs charts Dragana Jurisic’s journey around the former Yugoslavia, following the route taken by writer Rebecca West in 1937 which was written about in her seminal book Black Lamb and Grey Falcon (1941).

Jurisic’s resulting images capture unexpected and often uncanny parallels to West’s text, while also delving into the artist’s understanding of her own history and sense of place.
