The Dark Self: Susan Aldworth
7 June – 3 September 2017

The Dark Self is a major new exhibition by Susan Aldworth exploring the experience of sleep. A highly original and experimental artist known for her unorthodox printmaking techniques and philosophical investigations into the human brain and identity, in this exhibition Aldworth challenges us to reflect upon our nightly transitions from consciousness to oblivion. Aldworth has been Artist in Residence at the University of York since 2014.
