What is exposed behind the surface? What makes a place a crime scene? How do the forms that elude people's limited sense of sight become visible, creating links between microscopic spores and the unreachable corners of the universe? The exhibition The Invisible Image proposes a take on these questions, showing works that move around the notion of the documentary, testing the spectator’s imagination in the unfolding of their stories.
