INNER WORLDS AND OUTER REALITIES
CATHY WILKES BY ANNA STORR
Former Turner Prize nominee Cathy Wilkes (b1966) has since the 1990s been making compelling installations and assemblages, often drawn from a carefully selected array of objects. What are they, and what do they mean?

TATE VIDEO ON CATHY WILKES
KITS BEACH SOUNDWALK BY HILDEGARD WESTERKAMP
The original recording on which this piece is based was made on a calm winter morning, when the quiet lapping of the water and the tiny sounds of barnacles feeding were audible before an acoustic backdrop of the throbbing city. In this soundwalk composition we leave the city behind eventually and explore instead the tiny acoustic realm of barnacles, the world of high frequencies, inner space and dreams.
"JUST HOW GREEN THE GRASS IS "
This audio recording was taken in 2009 by Maria Doyle, one of the Art In Hospital artists, and is a conversation between Maria and Sadie, one of the residents who attended the AIH art sessions at Mearnskirk House.

MARIA LASSNIG: PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST
Born in Austria 100 years ago, Maria Lassnig had a rich and varied career through which she created a timeless body of paintings, leading to her reputation as one of the most visionary artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Inside her last studio in Vienna, Peter Pakesch of the Maria Lassnig Foundation and Hans Werner Poschauko, former student and close friend of the artist, expand upon Lassnig’s unique life and work to mark the centenary of her birth. Antonia Hoerschelmann, curator of The Albertina Museum’s exhibition ‘Maria Lassnig. Ways of Being’, and Natalie Lettner, author of ‘Maria Lassnig: Die Biografie’, shed light on the personal and art historical nuances that punctuated her seventy-year career.
LANDSCAPE INTO FILM
Curated by LUX, this online exhibition Presents a diverse selection of artists’ films from the LUX collection which draw on the British landscape as subject and inspiration.
In the Art in Hospital art sessions landscapes are some of the most favoured images to work from. Enjoyed for the pleasure of looking and remembering they provide.
We hope that the imagery available in films such as these can be used similarly to the way we might use a book of Landscape photographs or paintings in our art sessions. You can pause the films on a frame that you like and use this as a starting point to create your own artwork; copying what you see or using it as inspiration to make your own interpretation of 'Landscape'.

This video was made as part of the Renal Dialysis Reflection Project and is a conversation between Myra Cox who attended the Art in Hospital art sessions in the renal dialysis unit at Inverclyde hospital, Greenock, and the artists who facilitated the art sessions; Belinda Guidi and Maria Doyle. Images of Myra's work are shown alongside a discussion of the project and the work she made.
Belinda Guidi and Maria Doyle worked together facilitating art sessions with Renal Dialysis Patients at Inverclyde Hospital in Greenock during winter of 2012/13 for 4 months. Returning again in September 2018 to reflect on the project and re-experience the location, revisit patients and the renal dialysis unit, and experience the journey patients needed to make to receive their dialysis from surrounding Islands such as The Isle of Bute.
The conversation in this video was recorded during this revisiting and is a reflective piece between Maria, Belinda and Myra.
