NOSCE TE IPSUM – Know Thyself
Boiler House, The Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, London E1
16-25 November 2007
This November artist Lorraine Clarke and some 40 collaborators explore the link between magic, medicine and religion in a presentation of her work inspired by ancient amulets to reproductive cloning. Nosce Te Ipsum presents installations, soundscapes, animation, mixed media works, video, mime, performance and poetry. It runs from 16-25 November at The Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, London.
Lorraine Clarke's works range from large installations to small scale, finely crafted collections. They are reminiscent of objects associated with ancient rites and traditions whilst also having direct relevance to contemporary medical practices, referencing current scientific research and ethical and social issues.
Other artists taking part in the event include Brian Catling, animator Kate Sullivan, Chilean mime artist Ricardo Gaete, performance artist Lee Campbell and many others.
