In a psychedelic state formal symbolic structures tend to fracture and crumble away. Language and meaning are pushed to their very limits during a psychedelic experience (and sometimes well beyond…).
OH, DELIRIOUS REVINDICATIONS! takes the epiphenomena of psychedelic language as its starting point, presenting in the main gallery a display of works by Kate Owens, Damien Roach, Hilary Koob-Sassen and Mark Essen alongside a filmed interpretation of those works by poet and performer Lawrence Upton and violist/composer Benedict Taylor.
OH, DELIRIOUS REVINDICATIONS! has been devised by curator Paul Pieroni for the Department of Psychedelic Studies at Wysing Art Centre. Filming and production for the project by Thomas Lock.
The Department of Psychedelic Studies is the second of three departments within Wysing Arts Centre’s programme for 2011: "The Institute of Beyond".
