48 vignettes that document one-sided conversations heard on trains from around the UK and within a Simulated Mental Health ward at Kingston University and St George’s University London. Can you guess where each conversation originated?
These vignettes were first exhibited at the NOSE Festival in Exeter on the 29th March 2014 as a set of magnetic artworks each measuring 5 x 7cm. They were placed on lampposts and railings throughout the city, the public were invited to pick them up and collect or to leave for people to discover throughout the festival. Psychotherapist Harvey Wells joined artist Alban Low both in installing the magnets and in the simulated ward where they instigated their successful art programme.


Train or Ward Poster (A3)

Not Open Studios Exeter 2014 (NOSE) is a fringe event where the focus is on artworks and
artists working outside of the confines of studio-based practice. It reframes the City with elusive and surreptitious events, that includes site-sympathetic/specific interventions and installations; sensory journeys and acts of close observation; gestures, marks and interfaces.

“If you sit still long enough, just watch and listen, then people’s stories come to you, whether that is riding a bus or sitting in doctor’s waiting room. This project started as amusing illustrations for my facebook friends and has picked up speed ever since. The ‘Train or Ward’ exhibition aims to break down the oundaries by taking Art out of the gallery and into public spaces but also by challenging attitudes towards Mental Health in the community. The ‘normal’ lines are blurred, it is impossible to detect whether a conversation has originated from
the mental health ward or the local train. It is clear though that there is humour and pathos in abundance in both these environments.” Alban Low
