The exhibition  explores the relationship between mapping a place at a moment in time and the unseen network of systems operating just beyond our perception in the same setting. An ongoing drawing installation in the gallery space will will seek connections between systemic movement, endurance hallucinations, natural patterning, and synthetic grids as a way of understanding our natural environment.

Performance
Hiking Cult presents a walk through Hampstead Heath inspired by W. G. Sebald’s Rings of Saturn and the game Morpion Solitaire, Individual participants will create a synthetic mapping system through movement and drawing onto the natural landscape.

Drawing, endurance and natural psychedelic phenomenon are intertwined in Manfull's work. In Los Angeles she leads an artist hiking group called Hiking Cult which explores the wilderness around Southern California through guided hikes, performances and events.
