Artist's Talk

About

Artist Karen Ingham discusses contemporary art projects such as her own installation 'Narrative Remains' at the Hunterian Museum. Focusing on a series of site-specific interventions which challenge the exclusivity of the dissecting room or anatomical museum, Ingham asks whether the historical legacy of these 'theatres of death' can be used to re-present morbid remains to contemporary audiences.
