FOLLOW YOUR NOSE
Follow Your Nose is a webapp created by artist Sam Ayre that you can use in our galleries. A random sequence of questions and statements will appear which will prompt you to trust your own feelings rather than being influenced by other people’s opinions and perspectives.
Open the app, choose something in the exhibitions to look at and respond to as many questions and statements as you like. Follow your nose and see where your instincts take you!
The questions and statements are in English, Spanish, French, Turkish and Arabic.

Sharif Persaud: 'Have You Ever Had'
Historically, the art world has not recognised or valued the work of neurodivergent artists.

HOLLY HENDRY: INVERTEBRATE
This conversation between artists Holly Hendry and Rebecca Jagoe takes place on the occasion of Hendry’s solo exhibition ‘Indifferent Deep’ and major outdoor commission ‘Invertebrate’ at the De La Warr Pavilion. Invertebrate forms part of ‘Waterfronts’; an outdoor exhibition for England’s Creative Coast, that sees seven arts organisations in towns along the coastline of Essex, Kent and Sussex come together to showcase new outdoor site-specific commissions. Jagoe is an autistic artist based in Wales. Working across text, performance, textiles, drawing and sculpture, their work examines how Western narratives of gender, madness, illness, and identity intersect. Their practice often references European pre-capitalist medicine and sciences – such as medieval lapidary lore; the Emission Theory of vision; or the use of textual amulets for healing – with a view to examining how subjectivity and selfhood are culturally contingent. With an interest in clothing as an extension of bodies, often their work takes the form of garments which are simultaneously sculptural object, costume, and script for performance. Holly Hendry makes site-responsive sculptures and installations concerned with what lives beneath the surface, from hidden underground spaces to the interior workings of the body. She is interested in the space between deadness and animation, flatness and fullness, and how we navigate our bodies (as material parts) in contemporary culture. The artist’s projects often directly reference medical, industrial and geological research. By conducting her own experimentation, Hendry engages with processes such as material disintegration, re-use and transformation.
This conversation between artist Holly Hendry and clinician / educationalist Roger Kneebone takes place on the occasion of Hendry’s solo exhibition Indifferent Deep and major outdoor commission Invertebrate at the De La Warr Pavilion. Invertebrate is part of Waterfronts, an outdoor exhibition as part of England’s Creative Coast that sees seven arts organisations in towns along the coastline of Essex, Kent and East Sussex joining forces to showcase new outdoor site-specific commissions. Roger Kneebone is a clinician and educationalist who leads the Centre for Engagement and Simulation Science at Imperial College London and the Royal College of Music–Imperial Centre for Performance Science. His multidisciplinary research builds on his personal experience as a surgeon and a general practitioner and his interest in domains of expertise beyond medicine. Roger has built an unorthodox and creative team of clinicians, computer scientists, design engineers, social scientists, historians, artists, craftsmen and performers. He is passionate about engagement, which he sees as a translational resource bridging the worlds of clinical practice, biomedical science, patients and society. He is fascinated by the embodied knowledge that underpins science, medicine and the visual and performing arts.
