The Suttie Arts Space and The Small Gallery, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary
5 December 2020 – 28 February 2021
Sayings in the Suttie is an exhibition conceived as a direct response to the COVID-19 global pandemic. As part of the Amplify initiative, the exhibition is focused on participation and collaboration and invites people to share their thoughts on several aspects related to the idea of Life After COVID.
Sayings in the Suttie grants us an opportunity to reflect on the importance of The Suttie Arts Space as a welcoming, warm environment open to all.
We have designed the exhibition in a way to make participation safe, and to explore, create, engage and have fun!
As part of the exhibition, GHAT has commissioned Moray-based visual artist Graeme Roger to develop a digital artwork using quotes by NHS Grampian staff on what they are most looking forward to in a Life After COVID. The work will be added too during the run of the exhibition with a socially distanced celebration event in February 2021 on the Foresterhill Campus.
Graeme is a multimedia artist whose work includes sculpture, film, performance, photography, installations, theatre and residency projects, often collaborating with other artists and musicians.
Amplify is a Grampian Hospital Arts Trust participatory art initiative funded by Creative Scotland. The project aims to promote the many benefits of art in healthcare whilst exploring different ways to engage with and create art.
