Hospitals are strange places, separated from normal life, where we house the vulnerability and trauma of illness, where the corridors and signs seem endless, and things happen behind closed doors. Refreshing then to encounter this array of printed postcards splashed across the walls of the corridor leading to the first floor cafeteria deep inside St Georges Hospital. This open submission, inclusive exhibition comprises both artworks and wool words. There are over 200 pictures on display – or there were, but more on this later – and over 100 wool words created by student nurses in response to the Nurses Reaching Out project, which supplies woollen clothing for new born babies in Uganda.
