PEER, 97-99 Hoxton Street, London 

Emotionarama presents a range of artists’ ideas that are described in an overtly emotional or demonstrative manner through short pieces of creative writing. 

Participants were invited to produce a text that defined their imaginative and mental processes whilst creating an artwork. For example, some have chosen to record a method of thinking behind the production of an existing piece, while others discuss a concept for an unmade artwork in a reflective manner, and/or its materiality, texture, colour, shape, size, and content.

Performances of the contributions within Emotionarama will take place within environments in which members of the audience will be free to lie down, relax and close their eyes to imagine through listening. Through this process, it is hoped that potential new collaborators will have an opportunity to engage with the book’s range of creative processes and subsequently realise their own ideas in multiple forms.

Artists include: Polly Apfelbaum, Abel AuerFiona Banner, Kerstin Brätsch, Confraternity of Neoflagellants (Norman James Hogg and Neil Mulholland), David Raymond Conroy / Ghislaine Leung / Cally Spooner / Jesper List Thomsen, Matt Copson, Liu DingGerasimos Floratos, Andy Holden, Anna K.E., Florian Meisenberg, Mike Nelson, Alicia Paz, Alexander James PollardLindsay Seers, Andro SemeikoYuko ShiraishiAmy Sillman, Mark Titchner, Tris Vonna-Michell, Yu-Chen Wang, and Vicky Wright.

Project Emotionarama stems from Semeiko’s PEER Residency in 2013, where he started to explore the relationship between emotions and artist’s practice, and which led him to an exhibition “An Artist’s Workshop for Unveiling Emotions” in collaboration with Sally O'Reilly at BALTIC 39.
