Art on show in Brighton & Hove and Sussex
A Cancer Landscape – ONCA Gallery
Monday 16 February, 12:00pm – 7:00pm
This groundbreaking exhibition explores cancer as both a physical reality and an emotional journey. You are invited to contribute to this living landscape as it transforms the gallery.
Full colour prints of actual cancer cells are exhibited alongside vivid artistic representations of emotional responses. During the exhibition there will be a wide range of information on various aspects of cancer. “My journey has two intertwined threads – elements which mirror each other as exactly as the two chains of the double helix. One is the medical history. The physical injury, the illness… The parallel thread is my emotional response. The disbelief, the grief, the doubt, the flung out, the anger, the banter…” Michele Angel Petrone (author and artist of The Emotional Cancer Journey).
Catherine Draycott, Head of Wellcome Images said: “Imagery is fundamental to informing and shaping our understanding of the world around us, whether that is an up close scan of a cancerous cell, or an artwork telling the story of someone affected by it.”
FREE. All ages.
