Exhibition Catalogue: Living/ Loss- The Experience of Illness in Art

Exhibition guide offering information on 2012-'13 exhibition, Living/ Loss.

Great achievements in modern medicine have enhanced our knowledge and treatment of many diseases, but understanding what it feels like to be sick requires more than technological advances and medical science. The facts of disease are objective and readily available, whereas illness is subjective, less accessible, difficult to teach, and sadly, often neglected.

Although the developed world has been relieved of many scourges, chronic illness is widespread and increasing in prevalence. Few are spared the experience of illness or can avoid being touched by it, either personally or because of the misfortune of a loved one. This exhibition presents different perspectives on the experience of illness, from the candid self-portraits of Jo Spence during her cancer treatment to the tender and compassionate portraits of patients by Cecily Brennan, through to the tongue-in-cheek pharmaceuticals invented by Damien Hirst.
