Endoscopic art performance

Posted Aug 13 2009 6:18pm

Come to Copenhagen and watch UK-based artist Phillip Warnell’s intestines from the inside on Sunday 13 September.

The performance will take place in the old anatomical theatre at Medical Museion at 2 pm. Phillip will swallow a pill camera that is going to send images to a screen — allowing you to follow its way through his intestinal system. London-based consultant gastroentorologist Simon Anderson will be commentator.

Art historian  Rune Gade, body historian  Adam Bencard and historian of ideas  Jan Eric Olsén will set the performance in perspective with references to the status of contemporary performance art, historical understandings of the body and the historical background for today’s endoscopic diagnostics.

The event is organised by Bente Vinge Pedersen and Jonas Paludan here at Medical Museion in cooperation with  Golden Days. Tickets (100 DKK) can be bought here.
