Death Dreams and Desire- Just One week until launch – 22.9.2022.


About Memento Collective A collective of five working artists who meet regularly to share and discuss the progress of their work. Through doing so they have identified a number of common themes; memory, loss, re-emergence and return. These are expressed by each artist through a variety of practices, concepts and techniques, including drawing, painting and printmaking; sculpture; photography and film; documentation, installation and live art.

Here is a sneak peek of a clip from my video….

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.
