BAD MENTAL HYGIENE
A figure sits in a darkened room, helplessly attached to thought and memory. How did he become trapped in murky confinement? Will he ever escape? We are all products of our own reality, fed by perception, identity and memory. We create unique reality tunnels from the materials of our experience. This space is a metaphor for that creative process, a process which can have dark consequences. Is he addicted to sadness? Are we?
Working with artist Toni Peach we built a full size shadowbox in a lift shaft at the LTB gallery in Coventry using discarded objects.
