The uncanny is familiar and strange at the same time. In this exhibition, Sound, Video, Photography and the viewer’s own memory provide an image-based platform for exploring the metamorphosis of the uncanny.

Uncanny signifies a new direction to reactivate the AGM’s Permanent Collection, moving towards photography and contemporary digital practices
