Drop in to the Reading Room to take part in artist Oreet Ashery’s project.
Do you consider yourself healthy?
Ashery invites you to consider how you feel about your own mental and physical health. Add your response to a growing collection of intimate, moving, funny and frank accounts of health submitted by our visitors. A changing selection of responses will be displayed in the installation over the coming months, opening up the space for shared contemplation.
This project was originally part of Ashery’s recent exhibition at Wellcome Collection, ‘Misbehaving Bodies: Jo Spence and Oreet Ashery’, which explored lived experiences of care and chronic illness.
Listen to the audio (55 mins, featuring readers Jordan Ajadi, Alexis De Sousa, Lizzy Le Quesne, and Madinah Thompson).
What does it mean to be human, now?
How we can care for ourselves and for each other during extraordinary cultural, social and political shifts? Our programme brings multiple perspectives and voices both into the building and across our digital platforms, based on our collecting and commissioning activities during 2020.
