“Annabel Elgar’s photographic works map out a borderland of fragile enclaves and lost directions. Staged encounters, with heightened foregrounds and a voyeur’s intimacy, are swiftly usurped by the notion that as fiction they are in fact false- their source remaining unclear. Details become covert signifiers, offering us narrative pointers to clue together what has happened. Peppered with cropped figures, fires and totemic symbols, we are made aware of ritual behaviour and the allusion towards cult and secrecy, and yet the locale is never clarified.”
