Open Studio with Jayne Wilton

Sat 21 Sep 2019 @ 9:45 AM - 5:00 PM


Throughout the day, visitors will have the opportunity to drop into the open studio and record their breath in both 3D and 2D using print-making processes and clay modelling. This workshop is based on Jayne‘s work on words carried from the mouth by our breath, in particular her 3D print Concern and the Conversation Piece animation from which the piece was created.

This Open Studio will also give you the opportunity to participate in Jeppe Hein’s global project Breathe with Me, asking visitors to engage with their breath by painting a parallel line alongside the breath of others to show that we’re all part of the same world, breathing the same air.


The open studio is located in the Platt Room on the Lower Ground Floor. Suitable for all ages and abilities. However, children must be supervised by an adult.

This event is taking place on the Royal College of Physicians‘ Open House day, which will be the final opportunity for visitors to explore the Catch Your Breath exhibition in London before it makes its way to Bristol. You can book your place onto this event when it becomes live on the Royal College of Physicians Eventbrite page on Tuesday 20 August 2019.


About Jayne

Jayne Wilton is a visual artist who explores the breath the exchange between people and their environments. Her practice uses darkroom processes with drawing, photography, video and sound to capture the usually invisible trace of breath as it moves across a surface. She graduated with an MA from The Slade School of Fine Art in 2010 and has shown extensively in the UK and abroad. Previous collaborations include working with Physicist Peter Hobson at Brunel University during a Leverhulme funded residency (2012). During 2014, she was awarded an Arts Council Grant for the Arts to work with Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to visualise the breath of staff and patients with COPD.  Jayne is currently collaborating with the Life of Breath project and was commissioned in 2016 by The Respiratory Lancet to create the 12 monthly Journal’s Covers for that year.
