Exhibition | We began as part of the body by Beverley Hood

Whilst the gallery currently remains closed due to the restrictions of Covid19 on public facing events at the University, we are delighted to be hosting an online exhibition which will explore how bodies are imagined, visualised and made audible using bio-medical data. The exhibition is presented with the Centre for Biodmedicine Self & Society, as part of Being Human Festival.

A seven screen projected version of the film will also be showing on the Inspace City Screen for the duration of the exhibition. Available to view from outside every day from  3-10pm 12-30 November. 

The Being Human Festival is the UK’s only national festival of the humanities. A celebration of humanities research through public engagement, it is led by the School of Advanced Study at the University of London, in partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the British Academy.

In November each year the festival brings together universities, museums, galleries, archives, independent research organisations, community and commercial partners to make research in the humanities accessible to non-specialist audiences.

As part of the Festival we are showing We began as part of the body which is a multi-component digital artwork by Beverley Hood (University of Edinburgh) inspired the eczema genetic research laboratory of Professor Sara Brown, (University of Dundee) where Beverley undertook an artist residency in 2017 organised by ASCUS Art & Science.
