Ever wondered how memory and imagination sit side by side in our minds? Or how the minds of the most talented and creative sift through all their ideas? We can’t answer those questions for sure, but psychoanalyst Susie Orbach is going to take a stab at it over the next few months at Large Glass gallery.
Each session will have a special guest who will ask Susie about a topic that puzzles or intrigues them. She will then use this as a way to understand their mind, culture and creativity. Confused? Hopefully you won’t be. Think of these evenings as a rubix cube but instead of your fumbling hands trying to get those colours to line up, Susie and her guest will attempt to solve the cube. Or one side of it at least.
Tonight sees the artist Michael Craig-Martin settle on Susie’s couch. Michael has been in the art world since the 1960s and his work ranges from a Sainsbury’s shopping bag to massive, colourful and abstract paintings on the side of buildings. He has also made walking down Euston Road a lot more cheerful.
If you can’t catch the Michael Craig Martin session tonight, then writer Deborah Levy (Swimming Home) will be sharing her dilemmas with Susie on May 2.
Tickets are priced at £12 and events start at 7pm at the Large Glass Gallery in Caledonian Road. For info, see wegottickets.com.
