'double lives:duple trials' Exhibition

A 'double life' conventionally is a life of two 
identities where one is simultaneously involved 
in two sets of circumstances and retains the 
secrecy of one from the other.

The exhibition hopes to explore these two sets 
exposing the dichotomies of fiction and reality, 
mirror images and opposing forces. 'Double lives' 
cater for a parallel existence whether it 
portrays deceiving acts or insatiable actions and 
can as subtle as a pen name or as exaggerated as 
the secret identity of a super hero; ultimately 
why are they adopted?

Rene Descartes and Gilbert Ryle both contest from 
separate perspectives that our biographies- mind 
and body- are divided but can along in parallel 
without being the same entity.

investigates the functions of duality, such as
