Explore the taboos associated with blood, pain and endurance in this live art life drawing session led by Art Macabre. Medical historian Dr Sarah Chaney shares stories from history that delve into the socially sanctioned and pathological models of blood and bleeding. Following this the artist Amy Kingsmill performs a slow motion work ‘Bloom,’ in which white rose petals are pinned to her face with hypodermic needles. The live drawing class will consider the potential beauty in sacrifice, and the full spectrum of feelings associated with extreme endurance. Followed by discussion with the artist Amy Kingsmill and Dr Sarah Chaney.
