Exhibition of Self Discovery
Conceived by arts organisation Without Shape Without Form, and supported by Arts Council England, Journey of the Mind brings Sikh teachings and heritage to a contemporary context to spark conversations and encourage exchange.
Going beyond racial and religious boundaries, this travelling exhibition aims to evoke a sense of curiosity about the internal journey of the mind and its positive effects on people’s lives. The exhibition features figurative drawings and digitally created paintings by Canadian artist Kanwar Singh and short films by British animator Christian Wood.
We live in difficult times. Struggling with constant pressure from a world where we are always connected through digital media but still suffer loneliness. Anxiously searching for peace, happiness and love from the external world.
The impact of Covid-19 has also left its mark on mental health. On top of this, concern for the health of the planet and social injustice have left many feeling hopeless.
This exhibition explores the texts of the Sikh teachers and how, through these, the journey to understand the mind begins. And how the mind battles against negative forces within, to find peace in troubled times through focused practice, community and selfless service.
