Following Interrupt Cycle, a body of work produced in early 2016; Cycle 2 is an exhibition re-examining the ideas and work connected to the project.

The work presented in Cycle 2 explores the impact of Alzheimer’s disease on spatial and semantic memory. A single narrative following a man’s journey through a shifting labyrinth of translucent corridors is examined from different perspectives; an interpretive model of neural firing patterns of place cells in the brain; an exhaustive interrogation of the scenario in which the figure has been placed; the work aims to create new understanding of the underlying mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease through its different approaches to the material, which explore the complex intersections between memory, account, fact and fiction.

Interrupt Cycle has been presented at the Byker Gallery and the Newbridge Project Annexe. Find out more about the project here.

This exhibition has been made possible through support from the Gane Trust and is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
