Disordered States is seeking artists with lived experience of mental health problems who embody their experiences in their practice. Moving towards a new visual language for mental health, we aim to show 2D, 3D, installations and performance-based pieces which challenge representational and figurative tropes, engaging primarily with materiality and process.
Undertake an image search for ‘mental illness’ on the internet and you are faced with pages of clichéd head-clutchers, word clouds and monsters. Disordered States is searching for a new visual language for mental health.
In a radical step, we want to look at the mechanisms, thought processes and actions involved in mental illness, rejecting historical, representational and figurative tropes and moving towards a more critical discourse.
Disordered States is seeking artists with lived experience of mental health problems who embody their experiences in their practice. Moving towards a new visual language for mental health, we aim to show 2D works, 3D objects, installations and performance-based pieces which engage with the internal processes and external actions of mental illnesses.
Selected artists pay £20 towards Fringe Arts Bath and are invited to help invigilate the exhibition. We are a non-profit organization and rely on volunteers to run Fringe.#
