A Refraction of Truth
11 - 21 May
Urban Arts Gallery (Gallery of Reflection)
Exhibition that explores the disorder of Dysthimia and works to challenge tropes.
Suffering from Dysthymia - persistent depressive disorder - the work enables the artist to depict a world they have experienced when their control of reality and life becomes lost. In life perception of reality is skewed and even more so in heightened periods of depression and anxiety. Using photography and new technologies the work depicts the struggles experienced as well as developing self-revelations through symbolic interpretations. The work journeys through recovery and relapse. Final portraits surprise the viewer through dreamlike imagery that challenges our expectations and tropes.
The event is sponsored by Arc Fitness, UV Arts and The Playhouse.
