Personal Tempest

An international group show Personal Tempest, curated by Czech-born Tereza Kotyk, is on show in Hertfordshire. This interdisciplinary project drawing on literature, film, music and theatre explores how our inner state of mind can be affected by natural phenomena.

Based on Thomas Bernhard’s book Amras and Emily Brontë’s novel Wuthering Heights, Personal Tempest explores how our inner state of mind can be affected by natural phenomena, and how at times these effects can develop into a “personal tempest” – a “storm” of confused, eerie and uncomfortable feelings. Mirrored in imaginary accounts and personal testimony, Personal Tempest investigates this romantic motif through paintings, drawings, video installations, and photographs.

Featured artists: Eija Liisa Ahtila, Bas Jan Ader, Conrad Atkinson, Catherine Bertola, Matthew Buckingham, Charlotte Dumas, Rachel Goodyear, Anja Niemi, Clare Sherman, and Lois Weinberger.

Curated by: Tereza Kotyk
