SSSB Art Exhibition
Wednesday 21st March 2018
Art Exhibition Coordinator: Ellen Adams
Ellen is an Anatomical Sciences Laboratory Technician at the University of Southampton, who successfully organised the first SSSB Art Exhibition in March 2017.
Death and dying has always had strong representation in art and culture, owing to the primal desideratum for humans to understand, acknowledge and endeavour to solve its infinite mysteries.
Be it delineation or treatment of the physical form of the dead body, interpretations of emotion and grief or the significance of death in spirituality.
The SSSB art coordinators are looking to display conceptual, aesthetic, functional and humorous creative pieces inspired by and representing death, dying, grief, anatomy and archaeology to share in an exhibition to complement the academia of the conference.
The following artists will be taking part in this year's exhibition:
Cecelia Price: 'Vida y Muerte'
Naomi Douglas: 'The skinless man'
Gaetan Chretien: 'Curious artifacts'
Victoria McCulloch: 'The creative cavity and I'
