Death Animations

Friday 19 October 2012
BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead

Artist and BALTIC Professor Christine Borland has been developing research links between medical, scientific and contemporary art practice; her collaborative project with fellow artist Brody Condon explores the dynamic of the anatomy dissection theatre and its’ constituency, considering the potential for performance and role-play within this context.

The research for their project Circles of Focus was the foundation for a one-day symposium which was presented on 19 October 2012.

This interdisciplinary event, held at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art will included presentations by international experts – medical educators Dr Quentin Fogg and Professor Alan Bleakley, curator and art writer Dr Francis McKee, author Dr Ruth Richardson, bioethics lecturer Dr Simon Woods, Death Studies lecturer Dr John E Troyer, performance and Nordic LARP researcher Jaakko Stenros, in addition to artists Christine Borland and Brody Condon.
