Guestbook

Ghost Stories




A modern take on the ancient art of the ghost story by artist and storyteller Leanne Shapton.

What haunts us? Leanne Shapton recounts modern stories of encounters with the uncanny, asking whether these experiences are fragments of our imagination, or evidence of the supernatural. In more than two dozen stories and vignettes accompanied by an evocative curiosity cabinet of artefacts and images - found photographs, original paintings and portraits - Guest Book takes us through a glimmering, unsettling exploration of the evidence that marks the path of our existence and the visitations that haunt us even in the midst of life.
