‘A Statue is Present’ draws on the history of the XVIII century statues of Melancholy & Raving Madness to investigate improvements in the treatment of mental health through contemporary art.
The show features newly commissioned multi-media works by Mikey Cook, Travis Jeppesen, Jérémie Magar and Daniel Silver, which respond to the statues and bring back their presence under a new, positive meaning.
