Hospital Rooms is a charity initiative co founded by artist, Tim A Shaw and curator, Niamh White. The charity was formed through the joint ambition to improve conditions for residents staying at mental health rehabilitation centres, commissioning groups of artists to refurbish the wards.
Hospital Rooms' debut project took place at the Phoenix Unit at Springfield University hospital in Tooting this year, where artists such as Nick Knight and Gavin Turk were invited to install an artwork of their choice.
The project has just launched on SHOWstudio, where the works have been documented in an online gallery, as well as via interviews with some of the artists involved. Be sure to check out the project to learn more about the motivations behind the works as well as the way they have affected both patients, staff and artists!
