Arts and Disability Forum
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 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?
