Exhibition- Circling

Circling is a new moving image exhibition, which explores the physical and emotional journeys attached to the experience of living with persistent pain. The artworks emerged from workshops with participants that focused on the act of walking. Collectively they respond to themes such as: the changing sense of scale pain can bring, the nature of chronicity and the complexity of walking with others.

The exhibition is the culmination of a collaborative fellowship awarded to Anna Macdonald and Ceri Morgan by Keele’s Institute of Liberal Arts and Sciences (2018-19). The Fellowship explored new participatory arts methods, which brought together geopoetics, somatics and moving image practice. In 2019-20, the Keele Institute for Social Inclusion awarded funding to develop the work to focus on the relationship between chronicity, pain and hope in collaboration with bioethicist, Anthony Wrigley.
