The following presents excerpts from conversations between the artists referring to the exhibition title, Feeling of Knowing, and a visual back and forth between the artists during the months leading in: 

"Feeling of knowing" is an actual 'thing' in the study of memory. "feeling of knowing (FOK). FOK occurs when an individual feels that they have something in memory that cannot be recalled, but would be recognised if seen." - https://dictionary.apa.org/feeling-of-knowing

 

Interesting relationships between FOK and language and images in that definition. 

I remember reading briefly about FOK and Tip of your tongue states (TOTs) in relation to word games, trivial pursuit etc. I like the idea, in the context of the show, that works could be considered like mnemonic devices? 

 

Yes the FOK had me thinking about tv quiz shows etc

 

Surely in some way it’s an artistic working method too? maybe not in a strict following of its definition but making according to some ~Feeling of Knowing  you might be on to something, where that knowing is following some speculative thought

Always interested in the things that elude linguistic description. I like the idea that it includes the notion of a persistent mood. I wonder if it includes "a vibe"? (only half joking).

 

Maybe the feeling of knowing is located in the gut?

Gut feeling.

"Unthought known is a phrase coined by Christopher Bollas in the 1980s to represent those experiences in some way known to the individual, but about which the individual is unable to think.

At its most compelling, the unthought known stands for those early schemata for interpreting the object world that preconsciously determine our subsequent life expectations.[1] In this sense, the unthought known refers to preverbal, unschematised early experience/trauma that may determine one's behaviour unconsciously, barred to conscious thought.[2]" - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unthought_known
