Personal Tempest

  • 17 Sep 2011 — 6 Nov 2011

Personal Tempest explores how our inner state of mind can be affected by natural phenomena, and how at times these effects can develop into a ‘personal tempest’ – a ‘storm’ of confused, eerie and uncomfortable feelings. Mirrored in imaginary accounts and personal testimony, the exhibition explores this romantic motif through paintings, drawings, video installations, and photographs. Based on Thomas Bernhard’s book Amras and Emily Brontë’s novel Wuthering Heights, Personal Tempest combines historical and contemporary approaches with poetic storytelling and conceptual presentations and is accompanied by solo exhibitions by artists Catherine Bertola and Conrad Atkinson in Yorkshire.
