Placing 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.


The exhibition will dissect attitudes and approaches towards contexts of the body by showcasing visionary practices of leading international artists, clinicians and designers. These will be 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 will take 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.
