This colourful and often playful national touring exhibition results from an artist’s residency at the National Institute of Medical Research. Using digital imagery and installation, the artist Dr Ju Gosling aka ju90 explores the cultural construction of disability via society’s (mis)interpretation of science and medicine. The tour climaxes at the Hunterian, and includes an installation made especially for the museum. In the Memory Jar Collection, Ju responds to John Hunter’s collection of human and animal body parts, together with the use of photography within the study of anatomy.

A pre-recorded audio-description of the exhibition is available for blind and partially sighted visitors.
See the accompanying website

Funded by the Wellcome Trust.

The exhibition will be accompanied by two associated events, an artist’s talk and panel discussion.

A limited edition hardback of Ju's book Abnormal: How Britain became body dysphoric and the key to a cure (Bettany Press 2011) will be available in the museum shop.
