A bit about the exhibition...

‘The Traumatised Self’ is a collection of works that explore visual articulations of the impact of traumatic stress on mind, brain and body. They are a result of Laura Fischer’s ongoing research into the neuroscience of trauma and the use of creative practices to develop new tools for trauma survivors to heal and be heard.

Artworks are given an auditory resonance through Simone Micieli’s compositions. His pieces have been created from a deep connection and empathy with Laura’s work. The music, collected in ‘Music For Her Brain’, is originally crafted in harmony with Laura’s process, and thought to allow the listener to experience their own personal journey within visual and music.

This exhibition is part of a vaster movement that aims at sparking conversations to break the daunting silence surrounding trauma and mental illness and raise awareness. Trauma is not rare and it is not foreign - it is happening right here, right now, and it affects us all. It is time we cultivated the courage to acknowledge this issue.

A bit about the artists...

Laura is a cross-disciplinary artist and activist who situates her practice in the border between art and science. She blurs the lines between thinking and feeling, research and creativity. She mixes a palette of artistic mediums with a palette of tools rooted in psychiatry, psychology and neuroscience to undertake journeys to explore traits of profound human nature. Laura has had her artworks and films exhibited internationally since 2005 and is also a National Institute for Health Research CLAHRC Fellow, researching ways to improve trauma treatments.

Simone has been playing and writing for several bands for the past 10 years. A graduate in song-writing and a multi-instrumentalist, he currently focuses on production music and is involved in several live projects. Created most of the time in his home studio, his music is inspired by 70’s progressive rock, modern grunge and psychedelic rock. Everything is mixed with original ideas, derived from a constant sound research and experimentation.

'The Traumatised Self'

I've been composing music to support the amazing visual work of Laura Fischer, based on the impact of trauma on mind, brain and body.
