The Wellcome Collection present Chrystel Lebas - Regarding Forests

In connection with the On Happiness season at Wellcome Collection, artist Chrystel Lebas presents two new works from the Regarding Forests photographic series in a multi-sensory installation within the Grade I listed North Wing at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in the City of London.

Displayed in a space adjacent to the grand staircase, which features monumental paintings by William Hogarth, Lebas’ installation will offer a peaceful and restorative encounter for staff, patients and the public amid a busy working hospital.

Wellcome Collection’s collaboration with Barts Heritage is an opportunity to explore the positive impact culture and heritage can have on people’s lives, reaching people in a place and at a moment where they might need it most. This installation marks the start of a new engagement programme at Barts Heritage that unites heritage and health in the historic spaces of the North Wing at St Bartholomew’s.
