Curated Space

A collection of works curated by members of the Pop My Mind community. This month's guest curator is FABIAN FORBAN, winner of Curated Space November 2017, showcasing his favourite pieces from fellow Poppers.

Heimat Obstruction
Heimat Obstruction was performed as a durational piece in Berlin, 2011 and London 2017. On a daily basis we pass liminal places, without being in the moment, that moment where our minds are firm into what we are doing, the train keeps going, but there is some people that perhaps won't be allowed to...

Island
This piece was inspired by the view from a plane on a recent trip abroad. I was mesmerised by how beautiful our natural world looks from so high up. Aerial views allow us to see natural landscapes from a different angle. I found my flight a reminder at just how insignificant those small...

To Walk
This is a constructed landscape made from photos of objects found on a walk through Shotley. Beyond physical exercise walking provides an opportunity to explore the countryside, time for reflection and an escape from the everyday routine.

Cosmic blue
This piece explores cosmic themes through fluid shapes and luminous colours contrasted with illusive darkness. The vivid flash of colour celebrates cosmic explosions and glimpses of life that form within our galaxies. Perhaps one sees an abstracted landscape of a faraway planet. I hope this...

Figure in Motion
A raw, unedited photograph I took using long exposure during the Watch Dance Class workshop. I wanted to captureone whole movement of the dancer's body, and how fluid and graceful it looked. I took loads of photos during the workshop, but this was my favourite piece because the dancer is all...

L'Entre-Deux
Using Dulcie Wagstaff's Familiar Gardens for inspiration, I explore and investigate the collage technique in one of my screen print. Blaise Pascal's words on the print: "Le silence eternal de ces espaces infinis m'effraie" ("The eternal silence of these infinite spaces frightens...

Morning Flowers
The entire collection inspired me! But Dulcie Wagstaff contrast between the two photo's brought me to a place of comfort. Which help me create this sound. A tune you'll loved to hear waking up from a dream of flowers.

Finding myself with some time to kill at Liverpool Street station, I decided to use the opportunity to point my camera at the hustling crowds below... only to be shouted at by a security guard! Still, the aggro was well worth it as the experience enabled me to discover the haunting effect of...

The intruder
I made this selfie in Calais, France this July. We where walking down the cliff when there where panels made with different type of art by different artists. It was made in the waking of the Brexit.

No Place for Me
"Cocooned" deals with being within a protective shell. "No Place for Me" takes a rather different view- being stuck on the outside of another person's protective shell. When you love a person, but they won't let you get near them, the heartache can be difficult to deal with....

The underlying textures immediately drew me to "Chroma," along with its minimalist shapes, stark colors, and playful field of focus. I found it soothing on its surface and compelling in its invitation to lose yourself within its depths. Upon seeing the piece, my first thought was of a...

Intimate gathering
Humans are complex beings and human relation of any kind is complex in itself. The more we get to know other people intimately, the more flaws we see in them. We dislike them because we see a part of us that we do not like to acknowledge in ourselves. People merely act as a mirror. We hurt others...

"Hum an"
The word human instantly brings to mind Rag'n'Bone Man's song Human. The first time I heard this song was almost a year ago when I was working as a support worker in a low secure unit hospital for adolescents suffering from mental health problems. I will always remember the deep and sad irony that...

Tapetum Lucidum
Inspired by the beauty of anatomy, I created this piece to show the rarely-seen view of the back of a dog's eye. Unlike humans, dogs (amongst other animals) have a beautiful blue/green reflective surface to their fundus which I get the pleasure to examine as a vet, that I wanted to share with...

Inner Strength
