Jayne Dyer’s new solo exhibition Just suppose… explores mankind’s relationship with the environment. Taking her cues from P.D.Ouspensky’s timeless novel The Strange Life of Ivan Osokin (1915) and Nietzsche’s theory of Eternal Recurrence, Dyer questions if we are doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over. Her gripping exhibition will ask us to consider the consequences of our actions and the nature of our implicated relationship with an increasingly frail environment.
