From 26 February through 2 March 2014, I’ll be doing a drawing/performance piece called “limn reveries”, in a group exhibition “Live in your Dreams!” at The Crypt Gallery, St Pancras Church, Euston, London. The exhibition is curated by Stéphane Verlet-Bottéro, whose research and interests are focused on curation as well as making his own work related to art and science.

The thinking behind the exercise is to listen to meditation sound tracks, whereby I can  “open up” my subconscious and access the rich imagery there, and then record or draw what I see.
