‘Beware the moon … and stick to the road …’
An American Werewolf in London (1981)
Stemming from the Middle Ages, the ‘lunar lunacy effect’ where the moon and its tides were widely believed to cause people to change into werewolves or vampires, has lately had a huge resurgence in popular culture. Sharp canines gnaw at the collective conscience, mirroring the darker side of the human psyche. Surfing this explosive wave of tide-driven mania, this exhibition brings together artists Linda Lencovic, Miranda Lopatkin and Nina Ogden, each exploring different aspects of lunacy and symbolism in the human psyche through painting, drawing and photography.
Miranda Lopatkin’s dreamlike photography explores our masked emotions. Photographic projections and collages illuminate hidden stories and explore how individuals interact and play with the projections thrust upon them.

Linda Lencovic’s practice explores the construction and performance of belief in the public realm. Uncanny figures transcend the everyday to engage in ephemeral moments of magic, madness or miracle.

Nina Ogden’s drawings capture Sigmund Freud’s preoccupation with animals, creating surreal narratives that use obsessive details culled from eggs, bees and tadpoles to examine how man and beast co-exist. There are limited edition prints available of three of Nina Ogden's drawings in the Transition Gallery Shop.
