In an encounter between two disciplines under one theme, British artist Katie Paterson and scientists from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute will describe their involvement in the Art in Global Health project. They will discuss with you what global health and genomics research means to them, what they are learning from each other and what they hope will come out of the project.
Katie Paterson is an emerging talent in the world of art. Her conceptual projects make use of sophisticated technologies and specialist expertise to stage intimate, poetic and philosophical engagements between people and their natural environment. Katie is currently in residence at the Sanger Institute, a charitably funded genomic research centre near Cambridge that focuses on understanding the role of genetics in health and disease. With the Institute’s scientists, Katie is exploring the personal, cultural and political dimensions of health and genomics research to create an exhibit at Kettle’s Yard gallery in Cambridge.
This is part of Art in Global Health, a project driven by Wellcome Collection that has set up six artist residencies in six research centres: the Sanger Institute in the UK and centres in Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Thailand and Vietnam.
