Announcing Dora Brooks’s exhibition “A mind’s guide to navigation”

We are pleased to announce an exhibition A mind’s guide to navigation by Dora Brooks on October 26(Sat.) – 27(Sun.), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.

Dora Brooks is an artist and neuroscientist originally from Hampshire, England. In 2015 she relocated to Amsterdam where she studied at the University of Amsterdam and graduated (with Distinction) with a joint degree in neuroscience and art history. During this time, Dora also worked together with The Blue Collective, a transnational art collective that brings artists, writers, and academics together to tackle contemporary issues related to the digital era.

We all use maps everyday to navigate our way through the world. This, however, doesn’t mean we need a physical map to remember which way it is to the kitchen, or the local shop. Luckily for us, we have a subconscious brain that cleverly stores maps of our surroundings helping us to decide where to go next. But what do these mind maps look like? Working from maps made by residents and the current artists at Student Kura, this work imagines the subjective knowledge of Itoshimas landscape.
