Abstract or Description

Anna Furse unveils for the first time in public her Digital Artwork I Am Not A Piece Of Meat, a commission that concludes her 3-year Residency with Create on the CAPP programme, during which she has run workshops, created a collaborative performance and developed this archival and interactive work. Her project takes in Renaissance Anatomy Theatres, the relationship between crime, punishment and dissection, the status of the cadaver, anxiety at death, disavowal of flesh, and public ignorance of anatomy. Issues of race and class are woven in, as is personal experience of death and the corpse. Attendees are encouraged to bring laptops or tablets to fully engage with the workshop.
