This project extends a working relationship between the artists involved and the anatomy department staff and site into an careful approach of working directly alongside museum cadaveric material to create a unique response to an emotionally and ethically complex environment. For each artist the project is a development from previous working themes around the medicalised body. As a group of artists who have worked together through various configurations in performances, festivals and educational contexts, the themes of this project are an ideal basis for extending mutual interests into an deeply invested working process.
