> DESCRIPTION

The Institute of Psychoplasmics was an exhibition about cultic social groupings and how they challenge the integrity of the social body by producing another within it. It took its name from the eponymous fictional institute in David Cronenberg's film The Brood, in which rage is encouraged to take the form of a cancerous schism within the body. Recreated within the Pump House gallery, the institute investigated cults, brainwashing, war games, rituals and other explorations of the body politic as a metaphor for the social body, through videos, paintings, sculptures, sound and object-based installations, live work, a discussion panel and a publication.
