For her exhibition at Candyland, Geraldine Hudson presents a new body of work, consisting of assemblage and projected images. Taking as her starting point, a psychogeographic walk between two, closed down, psychiatric institutions in Stockholm.
By considering the physical reality of the urban space and sensory experience, in relation to the archetypes of otherness – the ‘outsider’, she attempts to investigate the parallels between the built environment, cultural norms and the idea of Genius loci (spirit of place).
In this work Hudson has collaborated with Anders Bryngelsson and Jonas Tiljander who have composed the sound work in the installation.
Geraldine Hudson is originally from England, where she completed her masters degree in Printmaking at Bradford School of Art in 2006. She is currently based in Stockholm, where she set up the experimental exhibition space Konstapoteket in Hökarängen.
Working with mixed media installation and artists’ books, her practice is mainly concerned with constructs of power, cultural ‘norms’ and myth.
