Pages of Madness

Taking the psyche of a mentally ill person - using interplays of text, sound, photographic and video image - it involves trans-media re-conceptions of concrete poetry and the ciné-roman, investigations in narrative space and construction, and explorations of notions of cyberspace in relation to Asian ideas of void.

The exhibition provides an experimental response to medical studies which conclude that because of racism black people in the U.K. are many times more likely than white to experience mental illness. Professor Robin Murray, from the (British) Institute of Psychiatry, states that the experience of black people in the U.K. almost drives them mad.
