Artist’s Workshop: Jon Emmony
Thu 01 Jan 1970
11am - 12:30pm
Join Hospital Rooms artist Jon Emmony as he leads a sculpture workshop in which you will form shapes and textures based on the landscape. Sculptures will then be 3-D scanned and enhanced using digital software. You don’t need any previous art or digital experience to take part and will be guided through the process. All materials will be provided.
Jon Emmony is a digital artist and filmmaker who has created work for clients such as band The 1975, fashion designer Iris van Herpen, Nike and the V&A museum in London.
As part of his commission to create work for the Hospital Rooms project, as seen in the current Phoenix Gallery exhibition, Jon led a similar workshop with staff and service users at The Junipers, a brand new, purpose-built Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) for Devon, based in the grounds of Wonford House in Exeter.
Hospital Rooms is an arts and mental health charity that commissions extraordinary artworks from an impressive roster of award winning and acclaimed artists for NHS mental health inpatient units across the UK.
Their latest project is in Exeter with Devon Partnership NHS Trust for which new works have been created by Julian Opie, Mark Titchner, Sara Berman, Nina Royle, Tim A Shaw, Tamsin Relly, Jon Emmony, Susie Hamilton, Rose Pilkington, Lucy Stein, Grenville Davey and Bindi Vora.
This exhibition is an opportunity to share and discuss the work of Hospital Rooms, the creation of this new work and some of the issues surrounding art and mental health.
