'Cold winters stowed away,
isolated deep in the woods.
Perspective lost, he’s far-gone now.
Creatures eddy as forlorn moonlight cuts through the window.
Haunts paralyze, as the blood runs crazy'.

The exhibition draws inspiration from the Neko Case song ‘Dirty Knife’ and Curator, Ellie Anderson’s poetic interpretation of the ballad. Through the galleries space, Anderson depicts a tale of a man who after living a solitary life deep in the woods is driven to insanity within his own thoughts. Through their intricate drawings the artists recreate the haunting visions from his mind and present them in a setting which mimics the woodlands which drove him into madness. For anyone who has ever dreamed of going ‘into the wild’
