This Month at The Dragon Café – Moving Together!
Marwencol – Making sense of the world, this Monday from 12 – 8.30 pm at The Dragon Café.
Following an attack that left Mark Hogancamp with brain trauma and memory loss he repieced his world using imagination and creativity, creating a 1:6-scale model world, MARWENCOL. This event is presented in collaboration with film magazine Little White Lies and Contributing Editor Sophie Monks Kaufman said of its selection “His works are beautiful and fascinating miniatures, worthy of artistic exhibition in their own right. The most moving aspect of the story is its symbolism: the real world proved unbearably painful, so Mark made his own one, and then the real world came to meet him there.
Our imagination can help us to escape worldly pains, but it can also reconnect us to what we once tried to block out by showing us how to be in the world on our own terms.” We will be joined by Sophie and her colleague Hannah Woodhead for a post film discussion.
