Contemporary Art in Hospital
This last months Jordi V. Pou has been directing a project named “Contemporary art in Hospital”. This project is collaboration between La Panera Art Center and Arnau de Vilanova Hospital, both in Lleida, in a European funded program aiming to bring art projects to hospitals.
Jordi was asked to propose and run an art project inside the Hospital. According to the type of work he is doing lately the decision was to run a project using smartphones and photography. A set of smartphones was made available for anytime use to a group of people inside the hospital, including patients, families, doctors, and hospital workers. All of them have been using the smartphone to explain by images what is their daily experience in the hospital.
With a total of 13 participants and more than 250 images the results from a total of eight weeks project is now online at www.artihospital.org
The project was presented in a press conference yesterday. There has been a wide coverage by press and tv. As example see how Segre newspaper covers it in this pdf.
