Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain presents documentation for a site-specific exhibition at The Complex Gallery which takes on the ruined emerald aesthetics of Oz (Return to Oz, 1985). Eleanor McCaughey and Lucy Sheridan create an installation that contemplates the dark sentiment running through Return to Oz through the fabrication of a fictional landscape that layers elements of sculpture, painting, video and sound. The exhibition deals with themes of displacement, escapism and mental health, with obvious links to theatricality and film. Both artists are interested in the idea of elevating the status of selected everyday objects through various modes of display, lending new meaning and a facade of importance through altered modes of representation.
