Listen to this talk with Wellcome Collecton curators Shamita Sharmacharja and Emily Sargent as they discuss upcoming installations by artists Kerry Tribe and Sop. You will be able to see these artworks when we reopen our museum and library.
After an introduction by Melanie Keen, Director of Wellcome Collection, you’ll hear pre-recorded discussions with Shamita and Emily in the gallery, filmed during the installation of the artworks. Shamita discusses how Kerry Tribe’s ‘Standardized Patient’ highlights the need for empathy between patients and doctors in a clinical setting. Emily will explore Sop’s ‘The Den 1’, uncovering their experience as a shielder during the Covid-19 pandemic, and how they sought respite in nature. Their discussions will explore connections between both artists’ works.
At the end of the event there is a discussion between Melanie, Shamita and Emily. The event is live captioned by Stagetext.
This conversation mentions of end-of-life care.
