Being Human Festival

A Deep (Subjective) Ache, Being Human Festival

‘Humanising Medicine’ – an exhibition at Bart’s Pathology Museum.

Queen Mary’s University of London and King’s College London have collaborated to bring an exciting exhibition ‘Humanising Medicine’ to Bart’s Pathology Museum.  This evening of art and talks is part of the Being Human Festival and I am so pleased to be showing three new works.

This year the theme of Being Human Festival is ‘Discoveries and Secrets’. However, Queen Mary’s and King’s College have taken this overarching theme one step further with a more intimate narrative – ‘This Time it’s Personal’. I think this is an apt lens to explore modern medicine through. If I have learned anything through my recent experiences being interviewed for BBC Radio 4’s ‘D for Diagnosis‘, and taking part in research with King’s College, the days of broad overarching diagnosis and sweeping statements are coming to an end – medicine and science are becoming personal.

Refresh Art Award 2019 – The Manifesto

I have been shortlisted for the Refresh Art Award and I am so excited. I really wanted to share their manifesto, as it was the reason why I applied. I’ve had a great experience working with them and I can’t wait to meet the other shortlisted artists and organisers on the 6th June 2019 at 5th Base Gallery, London.

If you would like to support me and buy my book ‘Dream Dissociation Two’ you can purchase it here.

‘The Refresh Art Award was founded in 2018 as an independent prize to take the temperature of the unrepresented art world, which makes up the majority of artists producing work at any given time. What were these artists who don’t have gallery representation or a platform actually saying?

A year later, on the eve of the first show, the strongest emerging themes are women, from body positivity to lack of shame in the female form, to sexual abuse and date rape mixed with environmentalism, climate change and eco feminism.
