About

Over the past three years artist Lucy Lyons has studied the skeletons of patients who suffered from a rare disease called Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP), in which muscle turns to bone. As well as making drawings of the skeletons of deceased patients, Lucy has interviewed patients living with the condition, and has worked closely with medical researchers studying the cause of the disease. Her work reveals the power of drawing to delineate the hidden structures of disease. The exhibition contains Lucy's drawings, together with photographs and other supporting information, including quotes from patients living with the disease. The exhibition also includes the skeleton showing the effects of FOP from the collection of the 18th-century surgeon John Hunter.
