Tranquillity

Coming soon
  • Exhibition
Photograph of a forest scene with tall dark tree trunk rising vertically up covered in a mossy texture. On the ground are several fern like plants with large green leaves fanning out. The overall scene is dark and atmospheric, but towards the distance the scene become lighter as there are more open areas of forest and hits of sky.

Take a deeper look at feelings of peace and balance.

Tranquillity brings peace and balance, helping you to reconnect with yourself and your surroundings. There may be a wonderful simplicity to experiencing such calm feelings, but they are complex and difficult to attain. This exhibition offers new commissions that take a deeper look,such as Jasleen Kaur’s playful critique of the wellness industry and Chrystel Lebas’s sublime multi-sensory tribute to forests and how they affect our health. Historical artefacts, from a ‘régimedu corps’ medieval wellbeing manual to the notebooks that Octavia E Butler used as self-encouragement, show you some of the different ways that individuals pursue moments of tranquillity.
