Shared Insight: A collaborative exhibition.
Shared Insight showcases the work of Harrison Moore, a Central Saint Martins Fine Art Graduate, and Terence Wilde, an artist associated with Outside In.
Harrison and Terence worked together in partnership as part of a four-month residency at Kentish Town Health Centre earlier this year, where they were exploring shared insights of what it means to be artists working in contemporary London.
This exhibition, and accompanying booklet, shows one of their films and its scripts, as well as photographs and artworks created together.

What: Visual Art Exhibition
Where: Proteus Creation Space
From the 30th November to the 4th December, artist Laura Greenway will be showcasing her latest body of work in her debut solo show entitled ‘Streams of consciousness’. Drawing inspiration from her own experiences of mental illness, the exhibition aims to raise awareness of psychiatric illnesses such as OCD, psychosis and depression.
Streams of consciousness, whilst primarily a display of contemporary painting, boasts an amalgamation of disciplines ranging from watercolour to collage and built up textured pieces. Examining concepts of colour theory in relation to emotion, the show intends to create a dialogue about mental health, starting conversations about illness and in turn helping to reduce the stigma that can so often surround sufferers of mental health problems. Laura works completely in abstract, allowing her emotions to spill freely onto the canvas, capturing her daily struggles through gestural brush marks and leaving each piece open to interpretation.
Held at Basingstoke’s Proteus Creation Space, who have been incredibly helpful and generous in assisting with hosting the show, the exhibition is suitable for all ages and is free to attend. Most of the works on display will be for sale in order to raise money for mental illness with 25% of all sales being donated to mental health charity SANE. The artist describes the exhibition as ‘a documentation of mental distress and wellness through the medium of paint’, making it an exhibition not to be missed by those interested in psychoanalysis, mental health and the human condition – this compelling show will leave you both informed and curious to find out more.
