Château One's Heart takes a melancholic flashback trip on a vacation obscured with a bitter layer of failed romance, reflecting a hidden disappointment on the surface of an array of seemingly blissful and shimmering snapshots. The liquefying souvenir moments create a dimension of an emotional meltdown, giving way to surrender, a pending crisis and a tide of neurosis. The exhibition set-up sends the viewer into the narrative epicenter of the imaginative character - the memory of a hotel room, the broken heart.

Colin Mercer's artwork takes a critical look at the psychology of human behaviour, artistic expression and performance in a photographic medium. Through the use and influence of surrealism to guide his self portraits into a modern developed style of Photography. The aim of the work is to delve into an expressionist world created by his imagination whilst taking inspiration from film, dreams and surrealist art to express his emotions and identity. Often at times these themes are combined with using collage and editing software to recreate illusion and new forms using the human body in a modernist approach. He has a keen interest in identity and individual behaviour, how the human mind works and finding a comfort with looking into the darker side of our being.
The main principle of Chloe Myndiuk's work is the preservation of memories. She captures moments in time using objects from specific events in her life that are then placed in to vessels that represent people, feelings and relationships they share. The motives behind her pieces are to stem the loss of time and forever
immortalise her chosen memory or loved one. Like a magpie she salvages the tokens of the past and stows them away to scrutinise over and reminisce.
