An exhibition of new works by Monica Biagioli, a Senior Lecturer in BA Graphic & Media Design at London College of Communication (LCC), is now on show at the Untitled Gallery in Manchester until 28 April 2012. The intimate exhibition is composed of four molten lead text works and a sculpture sound installation.
In Speak Through, Biagioli presents a series of text works that explore Carl Jung’s theory of the collective unconscious. She selects words to highlight the various archetypes Jung describes, such as the Wise Old Man, the Hero and the Child.
- Vampire Weaver, by Monica Biagioli
The lead works Avenger and Vampire Weaver (pictured above) add to this list of archetypes, emphasising the artist’s interest in fairy tales and mythology.
Before Charge (pictured above) is a pipe structure that twists around the entrance with two listening areas that project a different spoken word piece. Hidden speakers emanate spoken word – one side recounting The Legend of Alderley and the other giving a recitation of Jungian archetypes.
