Through her practice, Jayne Wilton explores ways to capture and make visible the human breath. She uses a wide range of traditional and non traditional approaches to render the breath’s ephemeral dynamics.
Wilton graduated with an MA from The Slade School of Fine Art in 2010 where she used sculpture, printmaking, drawing, photography and installation to create a body of work titled Drawing Breath. In attempting to capture a trace of the breath, Wilton makes permanent and resilient the fragile and intangible.
She was recently Leverhulme funded Artist in Residence at the School of Engineering and Design, Brunel University, and is currently preparing for her third solo exhibition. New work will be presented alongside previous studies of the human breath at Royal Brompton Hospital this September. This exhibition will be the culmination of a period of research and development in collaboration with staff and patients at Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust.
The exhibition, entitled Breathe, will be curated by George Mogg and is funded by Arts Council England. It opens to the public on Monday 15th September and closes on 22nd November 2014. Breathe can be viewed from 9.00-18.00 daily in the exhibition space at the main hospital reception and café in Sydney Wing, Royal Brompton Hospital, Sydney Street, London, SW3 6NP.
