SICK! Living With Invisible Illness – Exhibition – 4th to 27th August 2017 – Sun Pier House – Chatham

Creative and Art Events


Sick! is a contemporary art exhibition being held 4th – 27th August 2017 and funded by Arts Council England with support from the Medway Council Arts Team. The exhibition features twelve artists who are affected by invisible chronic health conditions – work will cover a diverse range of disciplines, media and conditions; from bipolar to colitis, from dementia to fibromyalgia.

Sick! makes the invisible visible. It brings wit to the dull pain associated with chronic illness. It brings verve to feelings of listlessness. It brings people together instead of them feeling isolated. It brings humour and colour to the difficult path people living with illness tread.

Created by maker Zara Carpenter with artist and curator Matt Bray the exhibition will act as a vehicle to open up the conversation about living with invisible illness, in order to reduce the stigma around the subject and encourage those who suffer from it to come out of the shadows and stop being invisible. The project is also being supported by Rikard Osterlund and Xtina Lamb.

The preview night is on the 4th August from 6pm to 9pm at Sun Pier House and all are welcome.
