  • Commissioned by Attenborough Arts Centre, Mel Brimfield has created Talking Heads an exhibition of new work that includes a range of sound installations, sculptural, multiple films and large scale comic-like drawings. The exhibition reflects her lively collaborative approach that draws on an interdisciplinary practice encompassing theatre, visual art and performance. The commission is rooted in a long period of research undertaken by Mel at the Department of Psychosis Studies at Kings College Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, and the National Psychosis Unit at Bethlem Hospital, London, and explores the experiences of a national community of people living with and recovering from psychosis, and of the carers, nurses, neuroscientists, psychologists, occupational therapists, social workers and academics who work to understand and provide support. Mel’s Collaborators on this project include Professor of Psychiatry Sukhwinder Shergill,composer Gwyneth Herbert, filmmakers Nick Abrahams and Milo Creese, composer/ sound designers Paul Higgs and Gareth Fry, and Men In Sheds. The exhibition will tour to the Tetley (Leeds) and Chapter Arts (Cardiff). The project is supported by funding from the Arts Council England and Kings College Cultural Institute.
