'Memorial Walks' in group exhibition 'Waterlog'
MetadataShow full item record
The Memorial Walks project was commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella, London, for inclusion in their exhibition Waterlog. The method used in making The Memorial Walks was the principal outcome from a Wellcome Trust Sci-Art Research and Development Award. The award funded a body of collaborative research investigating the interaction of space and memory in psychosis, and particularly reduplicative paramnesia (the delusional belief that a place exists in two or more locations simultaneously). Collaboration occurred with Dr. Vaughan Bell (King’s College, London & Maudsley Hospital), a significant outcome of which was an experimental protocol that was valuable both for Bell’s research in psychology and my own practice-based research. This dual-application was made manifest in The Memorial Walks, where the new psychological method was used performatively to create an artwork involving participants. Each participant was invited to walk to a designated location as a way of triggering the recall of a painting from the Norwich School, thereby encouraging a layering of memory over the landscape. A catalogue, published specifically for The Memorial Walks in Waterlog by Film and Video Umbrella, included a newly commissioned essay by the exhibition's co-curator, Steven Bode. The catalogue was launched at the conference The Printed Path: Landscape, Walking and Recollection at Tate Britain on 29th September 2007, when a new version of The Memorial Walks was performed. The working method arising from the Wellcome Trust award had an earlier outcome at Chapter Gallery, Cardiff (October 2006). On this occasion, a solo-exhibition, participants were invited to recall from memory walks through other gallery spaces.
