Last month, from 14th til 30th of April, the Display Gallery in London hosted an unique event – “ID, a fictional journey into the Psyche”. A group exhibition of 14 international emerging artists, the show featured a wide array of artworks across different media, all with roots in urban culture. The event is a reference to Freud’s division of the psyche, where the ID is the tumultuous and innate part of the personality that contains all of our human instinctual drives. Hence, a wide range of artworks ranging from collage, painting, sculpture and digital illustration all under a common theme – the human mind, portrayed the battle between the ID over the Ego and the dominance of the first over the latter.
The event also marked the launch of a social enterprise dedicated to supporting artists in the beginning of their career – Chrom-Art.
Participating artists were: Andrew Chisholm, Emanuel de Sousa Daniel Dalopo, Arturo Garcia DlHeras, Amit Elan, Sal Jones, Beata Kozlowska, Gianluca Pisano, Simona Ruscheva, Paul Mathias Vef.
