The first UK solo exhibition by the late Swiss healer, researcher and artist Emma Kunz (1892–1963) was conceived with artist Christodoulos Panayiotou

Kunz never received a formal arts education, yet from 1938 she produced hundreds of geometric drawings which were first exhibited posthumously in the early 1970s. Her work was inspired by spiritualism and constructed using radiesthesia – a technique using a pendulum to plan the structure of her drawings, each of which were completed in a single session. Kunz considered these drawings as images of energy fields from which she would formulate diagnoses for her patients or answers to questions she posed to her pendulum. Engaging with these varied phenomena, Kunz’s work explores philosophical and scientific themes which were not only rooted to her own times but also for the future; she predicted that her drawings were destined for the 21st Century.
