Out Of Our Heads
Perceived and Directed by Vassiliki Tzanakou and curated by James Putnam and Vassiliki Tzanakou, Out Of Our Heads is an arts exhibition which explores one of the most fascinating human experiences – hallucinations – and its links with perception, illusions and mental health.
Out Of Our Heads project will feature a visual arts exhibition with works of established and emerging artists in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, installation, video, sound and performance art. The artists’ work will attempt to provoke us to enter into the space where the human brain and mind construct the world, hovering between perception, imagination and belief. Alongside the exhibition a series of talks, film screenings, workshops, performances and events will cover themes of perception, illusions, hallucinations and mental health in order to engage the public in a diverse dialogue about hallucinations and mental health and challenge the stigma that surrounds mental illness.
