4 February 2016 – 16 October 2016
This exhibition at the Wellcome Collection examines the perspectives from artists, psychologists, philosophers and neuroscientists to interrogate our understanding of the conscious experience.
Exploring phenomena such as somnambulism, synaesthesia, and disorders of memory and consciousness, the exhibition examines ideas around the nature of consciousness, and in particular what can happen when our typical conscious experience is interrupted, damaged or undermined.
‘States of Mind: Tracing the edges of consciousness’ features a series of changing installations. The final one is ‘Time Present’ by Shona Illingworth, from 19 July until 16 October.
The exhibition will also feature work by artists Carla MacKinnon, Louise K Wilson, A. R. Hopwood, Mary Kelly and Aya Ben Ron.
