Tour information:
Join the Curators of The Suttie Arts Space on an alternative tour of the hospital, using Rachel Barron’s unique map, made for the exhibition ‘Incidental Interiors’.

Rachel’s map uses unnoticed everyday objects within the hospital architecture as landmarks in her ‘Alternative Navigation System’ which takes you from The Suttie Arts Space to the opposite end of the hospital.

All tours are free but booking is required. If you want to come along please contact tamsin.greenlaw@nhs.net


Exhibition Info:
Incidental Interiors is a site-specific installation by artists Rachel Barron and Anna Shirron, which takes the hospital’s interior as its starting point. Zooming in on architectural elements that may typically go unnoticed - from duct taped floor panels to metal grid structures and spiral air vents - the artists have drawn from the incidental colour schemes and material encounters found within the hospital building.

Bringing together their work for the first time within this exhibition, the installation is composed of suspended panels that layer and interact;

Shirron’s paper cut outs - made entirely by hand - are formed of patterns derived from a series of photographs that magnify unplanned visual aspects within the hospital interior;

Barron’s transparent fabric panels display subtle hues of colour that reference the hospital’s navigational mapping system of colour coded zones. The work seeps into the hospital environment, through playful interventions that interact with interior elements. Through their installation, the artists aim to heighten the viewer’s perception of the hospital environment, encouraging a shift in perspective when re-entering its complex interior.
