Join the Arts & Disability Forum for LNAB on Thursday 01 February to celebrate the first official day of Spring, and our latest exhibition: Gobscure’s Still Alone in her Voices / Screwloose.
The Arts & Disability Forum is pleased to present Still Alone in her Voices / Screwloose, a haunting and at times darkly funny exhibition of visual poetry, film and sculptural pieces by the Newcastle-based self-taught artist, performer and writer Gobscure.
Born from Gobscure’s experiences of psychosis, still alone in her voices is a moving and provocative look, in Gobscure’s own words, at how “we too are constantly being erased & having to write ourselves back in”. Comprised of large white wooden boards covered in layers of charcoal writing, the work is weighty yet fragile – covered in languages you can see but cannot read.
Screwloose, a collection of sculptural pieces, short films, and visual-poems, responds to the increasing chaos of the international political system and asks the question: ‘Are we mad or are we made?’ reimagines an Ireland with a frictionless border, and asks if Donald Trump is still playing with his marbles or if he has lost them like the rest of us?
The exhibition is open 01 February – 09 March, Tuesday to Friday, 11am to 3pm.
