This exhibition showcases drawings and wax sculptures of human anatomy. It derives from the artist’s work internationally in medical museums, dissection labs and operating theatres. Far from being gruesome or morbid, the exhibition demonstrates how a symbiotic relation between artistic expression and scientific knowledge has the potential to evoke profound emotion.

The idea behind ‘A Long Table of Curiosities’ resonates with the MiR theme of  ‘longer tables’ in that it breaks down walls that are often built between art and science and opens up the question of how we as humans can be, simultaneously, so very different and yet very much the same.
