EXHBITION

The Visitors


Artists: P Mulligan and Anna Salmane
Curator: Cecily Rainey
9 June - 22 June, 2016
NX Projects in collaboration with Goldsmiths MFA
Batavia Rd (on the corner with Clifton Rise), New Cross SE14 6AX

The Visitors is a joint exhibition by artists Anna Salmane and P Mulligan which explores the primal
repressions of the subconscious mind. The unnerving, amorphous forms in Salmane's photographic series
Visiting Bertha are inspired by the character of Bertha - classified as mad and confined to an attic - in
Charlotte Bronte's novel Jane Eyre (1847). Constructed from waste materials accessible to a woman in
Bertha's position, their sculpted forms share an affinity to Mulligan's series of mud and clay sculptures
...a beginning, middle and an end...or...how words come out of bodies... Drawing on the messy, abject
quality of her materials, Mulligan's work considers the base forces driving our primitive instincts and
shaping our deepest notions of self.

The work of both artists gives form to disorderly and inarticulate psychological forces which are typically
repressed or hidden away in the attics of our minds. Presented here in the vitrine of NX Projects, these forces
are instead laid open to passing spectators as visitors to a scene of mental unrest.
