What if we could untangle a confused mind?

In a performed installation, one performer delicately re-speaks through a series of conversations between her and her grandfather celebrating and mapping his ageing process. Around her a confused world is built. Live audio and video manipulation creates a complex, beautifully composed environment born out of simple conversation. The link between the performer and grandfather is fragile; it can be distorted, paused or rewound. This is a tender, delicate investigation of mental health that invites an engaged audience to decipher a confused mind together.

Jo Hellier is a Bristol based artist who works with performance, video and audio to create immersive environments that she and the audience can engage with. Her work takes a surreal stance to examine the everyday and explores what can be demonstrated about humanity through the lens of surrealism.
