THE HEART OF THE MATTER

Heart of The Matter

A project www.insidetheheart.org bringing together art and medicine to reflect on the human heart led by Sofie Layton and bio-medical researcher Dr Giovanni Biglino in collaboration with leading cardiovascular centres in London, Bristol and Newcastle.  The exhibition is in Bristol https://shop.rwa.org.uk/products/the-heart-of-the-matter 14 July – 18 August and tours to London in October 2018.

The Heart of the Matter  exhibition was inspired by encounters and collaborations with patients with heart conditions, their families, artists, researchers, nurses and clinicians, this exhibition features 3D printing, digital animation, textiles, sound and sculpture. The artworks and the stories that influenced them offer insight into this extraordinary organ, which is both the engine room of our body and a symbol of human emotion.

The Heart of the Matter was developed with health psychologist Jo Wray and produced by Anna Ledgard, Susie Hall (GOSH Arts) and Nicky Petto in association with Artsadmin, and is supported by the Wellcome Trust, the Blavatnik Family Foundation, Above & Beyond, Great Ormond Street Hospital, British Heart Foundation, and with lottery funding from Arts Council England.
