Exposure: The Broken Reality Tunnel of Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)

  • Old Market Gallery Keppel Wharf, Market St Rotherham, South Yorkshire United Kingdom

Exposure, sponsored by Arts Council England, is an immersive, potentially disturbing, installation, debuting to the public at the Old Market Gallery in Rotherham, on September 26th 2015. 

The mixed media installation explores the little-understood medical condition of BDD. During the exhibition period, creator and fellow sufferer, Leigh de Vries, is also engaging in Youth Outreach workshops and talks in the week before the open day, to raise awareness of the condition which, only as recently as 2013, was recognised as being on the ‘obsessive-compulsive spectrum’, related to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Groups invited to view the installation include Rotherham's Thurcroft youth group, Myplace, R.C.A.T and RUSH (a homeless youth group).
