A group show of 10 artists, PSYCHO.GEOGRAPHY invites you to explore our complex relationship with the city we inhabit.
The term Psychogeography was formally defined by Guy Debord as:
the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behaviour of individuals.(Introduction to a Critique of Urban Geography, G. Debord, 1955).
While Debord is credited with the commonly accepted definition of Psychogeography within the Situationist framework, its roots go much deeper (D. Defoe, W. Blake, de Quincy, etc.), but more importantly wider – impossible to apprehend and based entirely on personal significance attributed by an individual in interaction with their environment.
Curated by Marina Potok, the exhibition explores how the rich, fast-paced, sharp-edged reality of city life can shape our experiences, emotions and behaviour or simply slip through our consciousness leaving just a trace of our memory.
Private View from 6 - 9pm on Thursday 6 March.
Exhibition open from 7 to 16 March on Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun from 12 - 5pm
We look forward to welcoming you.
