Rhian Solomon

Rhian Solomon is an artist, researcher and producer whose practice is concerned with drawing parallels between skin and cloth, the body and dress. 

She is the Director of the sKINship research programme that promotes collaborations between reconstructive plastic surgeons and pattern cutters for fashion. And is undertaking a PhD at London College of Fashion to explore models of collaboration across medical and design based disciplines. 

Currently Rhian is based in the complex breast reconstruction clinic of Morriston Hospital, Swansea, where she is working alongside patients, clinical anthropologists and medics to explore the body as a site for collaboration. 

She is also co-curator for the Crafting Anatomies exhibition and research project at Nottingham Trent University. 

Rhian has worked as a consultant, commissioned artist and educator internationally for organizations including Nike, The Wellcome Trust, Gerrit Reitveld Academie, Design Museum London and HEAD Geneva. 



Rhian Solomon will be featuring in Session 2 - Making
