Rearranging Faces Future Face book launch

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

The public are invited to explore the concept of facial disfigurement, and celebrate the launch of the Future Face book by Sandra Kemp which is accompanying the Wellcome Trust exhibition at the Science Museum.


The public are invited to explore the concept of facial disfigurement and reconstructive surgery by taking part in this thought-provoking object handling and discussion evening. The evening will also celebrate the launch of the Future Face book by Sandra Kemp which is accompanying the Wellcome Trust exhibition at the Science Museum.

Looking in the mirror do you see yourself looking back at you? What if your face were to be rearranged? Artist Paddy Hartley has created face corsets that alter the shape of the wearer’s face - highlighting the link between identity and appearance. Hartley has also collaborated with scientist Ian Thompson to develop tailor-made implants for patients’ injuries. Audiences can try on face corsets, handle bio-implants and look at the history of facial surgery through models and images from the First World War from the Gillies Archive at this one-off event.
