            Abstract

            During my Masters studies in the Manchester School of Art, I was showing my photography work in the Holden Gallery, next to the statue of Venus. Days before the opening of the exhibition, the walls of the gallery had to be repainted and the statue was covered with a polypropylene veiling. The fact that the object was still present in the room, however intentionally hidden, drew my attention. Can the presence of an object be concealed from us with a coverage of a veil? Does the visibly hidden object become more interesting and inviting to the viewer due to its mysticism? Does the object become absent or present in a different way?
