Women: a Cartography

27 September – 26 October
Preview event, Thursday 26 October 6 – 8pm

Artists Rachel Cochrane and Maggie Hickman Smith bring together arts and science in this creative response to the cellular pathology from their hysterectomy and mastectomy operations. 

The exhibition is further inspired by the recent tour to Sunderland of the work of polymath Leonardo da Vinci who died in 1519.   Rachel and Maggie use a variety of creative techniques old and new: from drawing with gall wood ink to digital photography and film.  The artists also explore five hundred years of development in our understanding of the human body – from da Vinci’s anatomical drawings to the latest digital imaging of microscopic cellular pathology.

In preparation for the exhibition, Rachel and Maggie have worked closely with pathology services at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead and University Hospital of North Tees.
