New exhibition reveals how rest (or lack of it) affects us

Ed Prosser, Experience Composite, 2016, still from film

Find out how rest — or lack of rest — affects your mind and body, as well as culture and society at a new exhibition later this month.

Rest & its discontents explores the dynamics of rest, stress, relaxation, sound, noise, work and mind-wandering through moving image, performance, drawing, poetry, data, sound, music and debate.

Works on show include an audio installation and noise-monitoring network prototyping a new Heathrow Airport, and 39 floating solar-powered objects, representing the categories of labour prohibited on the Sabbath.

The exhibition is the result of Hubbub, a two-year residency involving 50 international artists, scientists, broadcasters, researchers and mental health experts in The Hub at the Wellcome Collection, led by Durham University.

Rest & its discontents is  at Mile End Art Pavilion 30 September-30 October, Tuesday-Sunday. Entry is free.
