This is the end and yet the beginning of it all (background lyrical music)
3 weeks have passed by really quickly. They have been inspiring, surprising, challenging, questioning, testing, wondering, dancing and full of momentum.
The Wellcome Collection’s Reading Room overflows with treasures about science, health and illness. The division mind and body remains a real enigma and gynaecological cancers too. I realised a lot of people (men and women) were not able to place a WOMB or a CERIX on a drawing. There is a lot of work there to be done. So we’ll keep on diving, digging and trying to make sense or give body to what is scary, frightening but also ô so absurd: a disease.
What the hell it is, to have a body?
I leave you there with few of the quotes I found at the Wellcome Collection, but most of all, with Thomas Stern’s essay The Human and the Octopus >> HERE
