Look again… Galleries from Artist Workshop

 

Have you ever walked into a museum and photographed the shadowy corner of the room rather than the glass case in the middle? Have you ever stopped to look at the seemingly boring medical stuff that surrounds us – from dentures to rollators? And how often do you think about the fragility of the bones that support us into old age?

On Thursday 26th April, accompanying the opening of Experiences of Ageing, we invited guests to investigate some of the overlooked aspects of medicine with their pen, lens, and hands, guided by photographer Mette Bersang, sculptor Joanna Sperryn Jones, and Lucy Lyons, whose artistic research is displayed in the exhibition.
