Jo Spence and Oreet Ashery: Misbehaving Bodies

Wellcome Collection

183 Euston Road London
Greater London

Influential photographer Jo Spence’s (1934–92) work documents her diagnosis of breast cancer and subsequent healthcare regime throughout the 1980s. Her raw and confrontational photography will be shown alongside Oreet Ashery’s (b. 1966) award-winning miniseries ‘Revisiting Genesis’, 2016, which explores death and dying in the digital era. And in October 2019, a new commission by Ashery exploring the recent death of her father will be added.  In this exhibition, challenge your understanding of ‘misbehaving’ or ‘untypical’ bodies, and reflect on how illness can disrupt and shape the way you think about the body, family and identity.
