Tranquillity | Wellcome Collection

Be the first to favourite this.

New exhibition on Tranquillity at the Wellcome Collection in London – – runs until January 2022 with virtual tour also available.

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.

The rhythm of the streets

2021-07-08 18:00

Online

Walking lays the rhythm of the streets, archives the voice and the memory of the city. Our feet are an instrument, and they read the sonic composition of urban space. Our listening revitalizes social space. By walking we connect our body with the body of the city, as players and listeners of an urbanophonic orchestra - conversation about how walkers resonate with the city and how the city is sonorically composed by / of its walkers.
