Specimen A, 2011

Hunterian Museum, Royal College of Surgeons, London


The Hunterian Museum is a collection of medico-surgical ‘specimens and curiosities’ that reflect the lived history of physical impairment. ‘Specimen a’ represented an attempt to infiltrate and respond to the exotic and disturbing displays with a somewhat rudimentary attempt to place myself within the collection as a ‘living exhibit’.
