This summer, Exeter Phoenix Digital has been working with the Chelsea and Westminster Health Charity on the 2014 Artists’ Healthcare Landscape Moving Image Commission. This provided a fantastic opportunity for lens-based artists to develop their practice in relation to healthcare settings. The stunning work selected came from the artists Benjamin Borley, Volkhardt Müller and Chris Jones, each producing high quality moving image artworks for installation in the waiting rooms of The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.

Each artist has created calming and intriguing fixed view moving image landscape films that promote a sense of wellbeing for the visitors of the hospital spaces. The landscapes captured reflect the beauty of the sprawling Devon countryside and coastline, allowing the audience to watch restfully as the tide draws in, or the wind rustles in the fields. Each artist offered their own interpretation of the brief and the results are both interesting and visually impressive.

Exeter Phoenix will introduce the three artists, discuss the Artists’ Healthcare Landscape Moving Image Commission and screen the full works as part of the Tuesday Collective on Tuesday 21st October at 7pm in the Black Box (free entry, booking advised).
