Present State Examination is a group exhibition featuring newly commissioned artworks, images and text exploring socio-cultural, interpersonal, existential or political conditions surrounding the perception and treatment of psychological, physical and neurological 'illnesses'.

The three new commissions include: Louisa Martin's SOLA, the first iteration of a new body of work, reimagining the autistic labelled body, and laying out an experimental model of selfhood outside the pathological paradigm; Bella Milroy's Breakfast, focuses on experiences of illness and care within the domestic setting, through the stanzas of a poem written by her maternal grandmother; and Jessica Scott's Everything I Touch Turns To Dust, is a zine examining what it is like to live with schizoaffective disorder.

Opening and closing essays by DAM PROJECTS consider the benefits of progressive and alternative forms of treatment, and question standard notions of illness, aberrant consciousness or psycho-physiological disability.

Present State Examination is the first online exhibition curated for Turf Projects, the first entirely artist-run contemporary art space in Croydon, South London.
