All Is Well | 2013

A project at the Máxima Medical Center in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

 

The project consists of two elements: a “well” situated in the main entrance of the building and a series of six drawing. The well is a stainless-steel reflection pool with six figures hanging above the water. The series of drawings is printed on cards and posters and distributed around the hospital. Each drawing elaborates on one of the figures, placing it in a specific historical era, and a particular medical institution of that period. Printed on the back of each card is an original quote, describing a personal experience, or supplying certain facts regarding the hospital and the corresponding concept of medical treatment.

Cooperation between Máxima Medical Center and the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven.

פרוייקט במרכז הרפואי מקסימה שבאיינדהובן, הולנד.

הפרוייקט מורכב משני אלמנטים: ״באר״ המוצבת בכניסה הראשית לבניין וסדרה של שישה ציורים. הבאר היא בריכת השתקפות עשוייה מפלדת אל-חלד ומעליה שש דמויות מרחפות. סדרת הציורים מודפסת על כרטיסים ופוסטרים ומפוזרת ברחבי בית החולים. כל ציור מוקדש לדמות אחת, ממקם אותה בתקופה היסטורית מסויימת ובמוסד רפואי של אותו הזמן. על גב כל כרטיס מופיע ציטוט המתאר חוויה אישית או מספק עובדות ביחס לתפיסת הטיפול הרפואי של אותה התקופה.

שיתוף פעולה בין המרכז הרפואי מקסימה וה-Van Abbemuseum באיינדהובן.

Project Manager: Jan Schuijren | Experience Designer: Hadas Zemer Ben-Ari | Research Assistant: Chantal Kleinmeulman | Translator: Olivier & Wylie | Photographer: Peter Cox | Project Supervision Van Abbemuseum: Ulrike Erbslöh || Cooperation Máxima Medical Center and the Van Abbemuseum – In 2011, Máxima Medical Center and the Van Abbemuseum signed an agreement to integrate art into everyday life in the hospital in different ways. The hospital and the museum are building a long term relationship in which art is central to the communication with patients and visitors. Both institutions believe that art contributes to a pleasant environment for patients, visitors and hospital staff. Art can play an important role to make people think, to make them wonder or just to bring distraction and bring other thoughts to their minds. This has positive effects on the healing of patients. Besides the realisation of artworks in and for the hospital, there is also a joint mediation programme designed to provide visitors and patients more information and to stimulate interaction with the art works.
