Catch Your Breath @ Darlington Library
Mon 18 Nov 2019 - Mon 2 Dec 2019Free
Date: Monday 18 November – Monday 2 December 2019
Location: Darlington Library, Crown Street, Darlington, DL1 1ND
Breathing isn’t just a bodily function. It allows us to speak, laugh, and sing. It connects us to the outside world. It reflects our state of mind and can be consciously controlled. Breath has inspired art and literature. For many, it has a spiritual significance. The personal and cultural meaning of breath goes beyond the simple act of keeping us alive.
Catch Your Breath explores the Life of Breath research project, jointly led by Durham University and the University of Bristol. Bringing together medical history, philosophy, art, music, and literature, the exhibition discovers new ways of thinking about breath and breathlessness and their relationship to both illness and wellbeing.
This pop-up exhibition will be on display at this location from Monday 18 November until Monday 2 December 2019. This exhibition is free, so there’s no need to book!
