For Carl Jung, consciousness is like a small island in the ocean of the unconscious, while the unconscious is part of the primordial condition of humankind. Jung explains various methods for uncovering the contents of the unconscious, talk therapy, dream analysis and art making.
The works of these 19 artists explore the conscious and unconscious mind, sleeping and waking states, inner and outer worlds, things we see and don’t see, what we hide and what we show the world. Art holds the implicit power to awaken, stir and provoke through the innumerable ways that it charts the unknown; through representations of buried and hidden histories alongside meticulously mapped and dissected versions of reality. Artworks manifest slices of reality that are deliberately not at the forefront of consciousness in order to push the unforeseen forward.
