INNER ROOMS, INNER MINDS
city arts, NOTTINGHAM
An exhibition of artwork by Edwina Kung.
Created between 2021-2022, the exhibited works explore the connection between body and mind. Our minds are a space for us to explore our experiences, bringing in places, memories and people.
We are often unable to articulate, or make sense of, the many threads of thought whirling around in our heads. Edwina believes her drawings are a safe place to re-frame, reconstruct, and make sense of her experiences.
The exhibition is presented by City Arts, in collaboration with the Institute of Mental Health. Edwina has previously exhibited in ‘Re-Imagine’, one of four online open exhibitions looking at young artist’s mental health.
