MOSI: The Wasted Works

Nov 15, 2012 by     No Comments    Posted under: News

The Palace is at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) among other installations from Gina’s collective Wasted Works, all of which explore the life-giving potential of ‘discarded’ body parts as well as their relationship to myths, history, cutting-edge stem cell research and notions of what constitutes informed consent.

The exhibition was part of the Manchester Science Festival and will be open daily until the 27th of January 2013. Admission is free, and suitable for all ages at parental discretion.

MOSI’s next photography workshop, with Andrew Brooks on Tuesday 20th of November, will give participants the opportunity to photograph the exhibition. If you participate in this workshop, or have taken any photos of the Palace during a visit to the museum, we would very much like to share and display them on the website. Contact us here.

We are still collecting teeth to help the Palace grow; this is an organic artwork which relies on your generosity and support. If you would like to contribute to the Wasted Works and the ongoing debate around how our body parts could be used for stem cell regeneration, then please donate your baby teeth at the donation station in the exhibition space, or send them to us by post.
