Title: Anatomy Lessons
Author: Ingham, Karen
Abstract: Practice-led interdisciplinary research, linked to post-doctoral investigations into representations, historical and contemporary, of the anatomical theatre and the biomedical domain. Research questions how contemporary collaborations between artists and bio-scientists are re-invigorating the discourse between medicine, technology and art, focusing on a post-modern re-framing of the Dutch Anatomy Lesson paintings. Methods incorporate: collaborations with anatomists and anatomy theatres in Padua, Dublin, London, Edinburgh and Cardiff; exhibitions of large-scale photographic artworks; DVD projections. Unprecedented permission from HM Inspector of Anatomy allowing public to view work in functioning dissecting rooms whilst simultaneously exhibiting in galleries and museums as a cross fertilisation of science and art.
