Death Dreams & Desire


Memento Collective, a group of five contemporary artists, have found a source of inspiration in the work of Sigmund Freud. This collective exhibition, ‘Death, Dreams & Desire’ responds to Freud’s ideas and thinking through a multitude of creative approaches, from the haunting and self-questioning to the deathly and the curious. All of the senses will be stimulated through sound, film, photography, drawing, textiles and paint. This group exhibition shines new light on Freudian thinking and ideas, and will keep visitors intrigued long after they leave. DEATHS DREAMS & DESIRES We are excited to announce that our exhibition entitled 'Death, Dreams & Desire' will take place from 22nd September to 2nd October 2022. The venue is the unique Safehouse 1 in Peckham, London.

December – It’s snowing on WordPress!


Just returned from an amazing 10 days in Cornwall. My brain is bombarded with imagery of landscape and art. The Chance into Abstraction 3 day workshop was so inspiring. Ian Robertson led the workshop and it was all I had hoped for. You can view his work here: http://www.robertson-wardman.co.uk The Robyn Denny exhibition was also amazing …

Aimed at people who believe that they cannot paint or draw- …
