About the event

Please join rb&hArts for an evening reception and screening of About Soul by artist Tim Wainwright from 5.30pm.

At 7.00pm, we will invite the audience to join a conversation with the artist and film participants.  We anticipate ending the discussion at 8pm, followed by networking.

“About Soul” by Tim Wainwright is a consideration of soul in the everyday lives of Londoners and represents the completion of a quartet of works he began in 1993. These have examined what he considers to be the four elements of what it is to be human - mind, body, heart and soul. In relation to this he has previously documented the lives of the severely mentally ill, of people with cancer, and of those going through the heart transplantation process at Harefield Hospital. The selection of interviews shown for Creativity and Wellbeing Week include staff from Royal Brompton Hospital.

Tim Wainwright uses photography, film and sound to investigate the nature and consequences of transformation and to enable people to tell their stories. He has shown his work around the world, in museums, galleries, and public and private spaces. It has included large-scale visual and sonic installations, photographic documentary projects and abstract collections.

Other confirmed participants include Pete Gardom, writer and researcher for a creative consultancy based in Shoreditch. He says, “when Tim asked me if I’d like to contribute to ‘About Soul’ he reopened a door inside that I’d been drifting around for some time. This opportunity to explore and express a fundamental aspect of my reality sent me looking deep into myself. It pushed at the boundaries of my conceptions of who and what I am, and by extension, what it means to exist.”
