The tours will run right after our Open Lab, on Saturdays, 15th and 22nd February, 1st, 15th and 22nd March from 5pm to 5.30pm.There will also be a major one day symposium on World Tuberculosis Day on 24th March 2014 with key speakers in the field of TB and art/science practice held at Watermans for World Tuberculosis Day. The latest research into this disease, which currently affects one third of the World’s population, will be discussed in a highly accessible way.For further info and to book a place please visit: www.romanticdisease.eventbrite.co.ukBest wishes Irini-- Irini PapadimitriouHead of New Media Arts DevelopmentWatermans40 High StreetBrentford TW8 0DS Direct line: +44 (0)20 8232 1012Admin: +44 (0)20 8232 1020www.watermans.org.uk

"The Romantic Disease: An Artistic Investigation of Tuberculosis" - new exhibition and open lab by Anna Dumitriu
 
Exhibition open daily 16th January 2014 – 24th March 2014, 12pm (noon) – 9pm
 The Romantic Disease: An Artistic Investigation of Tuberculosis, is a ground-breaking solo exhibition by artist, Anna Dumitriu at Watermans Gallery, where it has been delighting visitors for its ability to bring art and science together merging history and cutting edge biomedical research to engage public debate in the field of science.
The show explores the strange history of TB from artistic, social and scientific perspectives and covers subjects such as superstitions about the disease, its literary and romantic associations, the development of antibiotics and the latest research into whole genome sequencing of bacteria.
Artworks in The Romantic Disease" are made with a combination of textile art and biological matter including strains ofMycobacterium vaccae, M. bovis and M. tuberculosis that have been sterilized prior to exhibition. Re-crafted historical artefacts and objects are added to the mix. For example, Dumitriu has developed a series of textile installations stained with bacteria dyes patterned using antibiotic ‘resists’, which focus on how early ‘antibiotics’, such as Prontosil, were derived from chemical dyes. For ”Where there’s dust there’s danger” she has created a series of tiny felt lungs from wool and dust into which she has incorporated the DNA of killed Mycobacterium tuberculosis produced in a Containment Level 3 Laboratory (the highest level for handling bacteria). Around a century ago household dust was incorrectly thought to be one of the primary causes of the disease. Amongst the altered historical artefacts an intricately carved and engraved Pneumothorax Machine can be found, previously used to collapse lungs of unfortunate patients ‘to give them a rest’. The exhibition has been developed through Anna Dumitriu's ongoing artist’s residency at The University of Oxford with the UK CRC Modernising Medical Microbiology Project and is funded by The Wellcome Trust. As well as the exhibition and symposium, The Romantic Disease includes an ‘open lab’ workshop with Anna Dumitriu, Dr Simon Park, Dr Melissa Grant and special guests. This will run on five Saturdays, 11am - 5pm, on 15th and 22nd February, 1st, 15th and 22nd March 2014 and visitors on those days will see the group at work in the gallery.www.openlabworkshop.eventbrite.co.uk
Please note the free Open Lab is now sold out, but you can join one of our free gallery tours with Anna, taking place on Saturdays, 15, 22 February, 1, 15 and 22 March at 5pm. Weblinks:http://annadumitriu.tumblr.com/RomanticDiseasehttp://www.normalflora.co.uk
