 Crafting Anatomies at the Bonington Gallery, Nottingham

7th January – 4th February 2015

I currently have two pieces of work in the exhibition, ‘Ohio Locus 27’, and ‘Mothers Touch’.

‘Crafting Anatomies will place the human body at the centre of a multi-disciplinary dialogue; exploring how this entity has been interpreted, crafted and reimagined in historical, contemporary and future contexts.’ Bonington Gallery

The exhibition dissects attitudes and approaches towards contexts of the body by showcasing visionary practices of leading international artists, clinicians and designers. These are featured alongside anatomical exhibits selected from historical collections including films from The Wellcome Trust archive.

Organs crafted by silk worms, bespoke jewellery cultured from human skin cells, and couture garments constructed using plastic surgery cutting techniques are just some of the speculative projects that will be on display.

 43 practitioners in total are taking part, including   Shelly Goldsmith  Amy Congdon  Richard Arm   John Pacey-Lowrie   Juliana Sissons   Karen Ingham   Marloes ten Bhömer   The Human Harp Project and many more.
