The exhibition later toured to the Museum of Science and Industry, 26 July 2013 - 4 January 2014.

A catalogue accompanied the exhibition: Brains: The Mind as Matter, edited by Marius Kwint, and Richard Wingate, 2012, published by Profile Books, and the Wellcome Trust, London.

 

Reviews of the exhibition appeared in Wallpaper Magazine (March 2012); The Independent (Sunday 1 April 2012); The Guardian (13 April 2012)  and The Lancet, August 2012

The work is a slowly evolving single-channel HD video work, that can either be shown on a large portrait TV monitor or projected onto a wall from a good quality HD projector on a black voile screen: giving the image a feeling of being suspended.

The exhibition Brains: the Mind as Matter exhibition explored what humans have done to brains in the name of medical intervention, scientific enquiry, cultural meaning and technological change.

Featuring more than 150 artefacts – real brains, artworks, manuscripts, artefacts, videos and photography – it pursued the continuing quest to manipulate and decipher this unique and mysterious human organ, whose secrets still confound and inspire. ‘Brains’ asked not what brains do to us, but what we have done to brains – focussing on the bodily presence of the organ rather than investigating the neuroscience of the mind.
