‘The Mind’s Eye’: an exhibition of art works by long stay patients and visiting artists from Homerton Hospital’s RNRU at Hackney Museum
1 Reading Lane
Opens Thursday June 12th 6-7.45 PM.
All staff welcome.
‘The Mind’s Eye’ is an exhibition of experimental art works created by long stay patients with acquired and traumatic brain injuries, made in specialist art workshops in the Regional Neurological Rehabilitation Unit at Homerton Hospital. It also showcases the work of innovative visiting artists who support the hospital’s art programme and share their creativity with patients.
The RNRU art workshop has been running for 23 years and is the brainchild of artist, Shaun Caton, who has co-curated this fascinating exhibition with Hackney Museum.
This stunning exhibition highlights some of the many unusual and collaborative projects undertaken by visiting artists with patients, including such works as self portrait photography, experimental print making, bookazines, vintage paper collage, Lumen photographs, postcard art, responses to sound works, Polaroid transfers, recycled book art and painted sticks.
‘Making an exhibition as diverse and rich as this just goes to show that Homerton Hospital provides a unique service that thinks outside of the box, that genuinely helps patients in many ways towards their recovery.’ Shaun Caton, curator.
