Hunterian Museum, London is final venue for Ju Gosling's Touring exhibition: 'Abnormal'

About

This colourful and often playful national touring exhibition results from an artist's residency at the National Institute of Medical Research. Using digital imagery and installation, the artist Dr Ju Gosling aka ju90 explores the cultural construction of disability via society's (mis)interpretation of science and medicine. The tour climaxes at the Hunterian, and includes an installation made especially for the museum. In the Memory Jar Collection, Ju responds to John Hunter's collection of human and animal body parts, together with the use of photography within the study of anatomy. A pre-recorded audio-description of the exhibition is available for blind and partially sighted visitors.
