Body Narratives / Cast from Life

Posted in Uncategorized by chrisfremantle on March 14, 2011

Thursday 10th March I attended an anatomy lecture at Glasgow Sculpture Studios.  As part of Christine Borland’s Cast from Life residency and exhibition, she had invited Quentin Fogg, a member of staff of Glasgow University’s Anatomy Department, to lecture.  He gave a fascinating introduction and history of the development of Anatomy from a visual perspective, focusing on the evolution of drawing and representation.

Joyce Cutler-Shaw has just announced her exhibition ‘Body Narratives‘ at the New York University Health Sciences Library.  Like Borland, directly tackling the assumption that everything about anatomy is already known, Cutler-Shaw is opening up the issue of representation, realism and the body.
