 Injury to the frontal lobe of the brain can cause profound changes to an individual’s personality and identity. Losing one’s sense of self is a collaboration between the IoPPN Department of Basic & Clinical Neuroscience and artists Isla Millar and Iris Musel, which explores these changes by using art as a research tool to help individuals communicate their lived experience. The exhibit includes works by the artists, as well as participants with experience of frontal lobe brain injury.

Where Am I? Solo Exhibition, Cupola Gallery

“Space is a fundamental aspect of the mind” John O’Keefe. 

Where Am I? is a solo exhibition by artist Isla Millar which explores a progression from the physical to the cognitive.

“We orientate ourselves through familiarity with spaces, recognition of landmarks, boundaries and memories of events. Inspired by moving home, this exhibition explores how changes to our physical surroundings disrupt our sense of place and how our mind creates cognitive maps to allow us to navigate our environment and know where we are”.

This solo exhibition is kindly sponsored by the Cupola Gallery and the Sheffield International Artists Book Prize and features work created alongside Isla's winning artist's book.
