Susan Aldworth: The Dark Self

St Mary's

Susan Aldworth’s new exhibition The Dark Self was inspired by her research into sleep during her three year residency at the University of York working with neuroscientist Professor Miles Whittington and art historian Professor Michael White.

Aldworth has long been fascinated by the relationship of the brain to our sense of self as witnessed in her exhibitions The Portrait Anatomised, National Portrait Gallery, London 2013, Reassembling the Self, Hatton Gallery, Newcastle 2012 and Scribing the Soul, Transition Gallery, London 2010. Her suite of prints, Transience, marked the first time etchings had been made from the imprint of human brain tissue and were shown in Realisation at the Fitzwilliam Museum in 2017.
