This exhibition presents drawings and objects from a 2-year postdoctoral research fellowship by the London artist Lucy Lyons. Lucy sees drawing as a method for gaining understanding of unfamiliar objects and to develop greater insight into the familiar – in this case the sometimes overlooked everyday aspects of ageing. The drawing process involves being in the presence of objects and spending a significant amount of time looking at them. Lucy Lyons collected her research in large bound books which are displayed in the exhibition along with a single set of prints made specifically for this exhibition and a selection of the investigated objects.
The drawings are exhibited in the galleries below.

On April 26th, we held a hands-on artist workshop to celebrate the opening of the exhibition, as part of our new event series Body | Medicine | Object. Click here to see a gallery of the results, and here to watch a short film of the event.
