The Bluecoat is presenting the largest overview to date of Suki Chan’s multi-platform project CONSCIOUS. Suki Chan is a critically-acclaimed artist and filmmaker whose work uses moving image, photography, and sound to explore our perception of reality.
CONSCIOUS brings together different perspectives from scientists and ordinary people which shake up our preconceptions about individual and collective consciousness. Within her wider study of consciousness and perception, the artist worked with people living with dementia to explore how memory loss can destabilise our understanding of the present, while opening up other realities.
The exhibition includes photography, sculpture, virtual reality and three films Memory (2019); Hallucinations (2020) and Fog In My Head (2021), a major commission by Film London.
