AAF Battersea – 11 March 2015

The Reality Principle

The Reality Principle

Susan Aldworth’s new trilogy of lenticular prints The Reality Principle were inspired both by Freudian theory, and a question the artist found herself asking whilst looking at a medical scan showing the anatomy of a brain; what would it look like to see the inner workings of the mind, and an imagination’s moment of inspiration? The series were created as lenticulars as Susan felt the sense of movement of these time-based prints would enable the spark of inspiration to be visually represented.

Transience_2014

Transience – Invitation to a private view – Friday 4 April 2014, 5.30-8pm
Exhibition continues until Thursday 1 May 2014

Aldworth, an experimental print and film maker, investigates the transience of self. Her fascination with the physical brain has led to new work which employs techniques from the traditional to the more radical.

In Transience  Aldworth explores the brain as matter – a historical first – etching from human brain tissue.

This work has been made in collaboration with  Professor David Dexter at the Parkinson’s UK Brain Bank at Imperial College.

Compulsion – 8 August 2013

Compulsion

COMPULSION
The exhibition runs from 8-18 August, 4pm – sunset, St Clements Hospital, 2a Bow Road, Mile End E3 4LL.

PRIVATE VIEW: Friday 2nd August 7-9pm St Clements Hospital, 2a Bow Road, Mile End E3 4LL

Local artists, inspired by the poignancy and beauty of a derelict psychiatric hospital and former workhouse , transform St Clement’s Hospital, Bow – soon to be the first urban community land trust in the UK –  into a vibrant celebration of compulsive behavior exploring  childhood, mutability and society’s perception of normality.

The building resonates with its history. A group of 8 artists including  Susan Aldworth, Tessa Garland and Amikam Toren, have been given access to this crumbling building prior to redevelopment in an exhibition, COMPULSION, curated by artist Miranda Housden. In COMPULSION they present a series of site-specific installations which respond to the palpable tensions in the abandoned rooms.

The transformation of this historic building forms part of this summer’s Shuffle Festival, which includes theatre, poetry readings, and films curated by director and local resident, Danny Boyle.
