September 2nd - 5th 2016
As part of the MA Contemporary Fine Art Exhibition 'Spectrum', Jamie F Simpson took over The Pharmacy for 2 months during the summer of 2016. In this time he created 5 works within the space, most of which were completely new and site dependent.
Memories are a fundamental part of our lives; they change and shape almost every thought and moment in our daily routine. They are fragile, fragmented and unreliable and yet without them, we are without identity; we lose our identity when we forget.
Jamie F Simpson invites visitors into a multi-layered interior of hidden and forgotten structures containing moving images, sounds and site dependent installations.
Discussing concepts of identity, absence, repetition, time, place and memory, Simpson explores the intrinsic connections between narrative, text and image. Through these bold and provocative notions and concepts, he attempts to influence a change in the mind of the viewer by forcing them to imagine their own life and memories as art.
