Uncool Mind refers to a state of heightened and uncontrolled mental energy and excitability. The exhibition brings together an assembly of free associative drawings and images, compulsive marks and gestures bridging conscious choice and unpredictable necessity. Griffiths’ works investigate subjective mind and body states in relation to the outer world phenomena and interactions. Recurring motifs of both individual and group psychotherapy, both individual and collective, recur as a speculative visual space or stage for examining the exchange between people, what can be shared, what is private and what could be opened outward.
