Future Selves is currently showing at ORTUS, Denmark Hill from July 2022 - January 2023.
With heartfelt thanks to the team at Bethlem Gallery - Sophie, Ed, Mike, Ali, Heather and Shetha. Also ORTUS for hosting, the Maudsley Charity for funding, and the Mental Health and Justice project. I am so grateful to everyone who made this happen.
Future Selves is the culmination of my three-year research project in dialogue with current research at King’s College London on advance directives and bipolar. The exhibition is a collection of textile sculptures, altered objects and drawings. Through making, I interrogate notions of control and care, and how we might make decisions for a future time when we are unable to look after ourselves.
What conversations would you have with your future self?
