The desert is repeatedly used in theoretical texts as a metaphorical space of exile. Similarly, twilight can be understood to encapsulate fleeting intangibility. And what of the frog? It exists in nature and culture as a mutable entity, living comfortably on the shoreline. Taken together as space, time and subject, The Frog in the Desert at Twilight is an exhibition of visual art that considers the multifarious potentials of being slippery in the magical year of 2018.
