Studio (Free Entry)
Pallant House Gallery is marking World Mental Health Day on 10 October with 'Knitting Time: A Journey through Loss'; an exhibition of work that reflects on loss and its impact on psychosis.
On display in the Studio from 8 October - 3 November, the exhibition is the culmination of an Arts Council Grants for the Arts supported project deivsed by artist, writer, and disability arts supporter, Colin Hambrook.
It includes work by Colin as well as pieces by participants of a series of supporting Outside In: Step Up workshops in response to the theme of 'loss', as well as an audio-descriptive artwork by Sound Artist Joseph Young.
Colin says: "Despite the universality of the experience of grief and loss there are few cultural outlets for expression of these states of being. Hovering below the surface, emotions of grief and loss have dominated my life journey. Loss can impact on us in many ways. It can create a subtext for our lives that we have little or no control over. However, personal experience of loss can be a source of inspiration for creative expression. Knitting Time attempts to articulate universal themes out of the particular."
