Artist’s Talk – Lindsay Seers
Artist Lindsay Seers’ and George Vasey, Curator at Wellcome Collection, discuss Seers’ installation Care(less). The work uses the hallucinatory quality of VR technology to convey an embodied experience of what it is to be in an ageing body.
In dissecting the infrastructures that are failing those needing to be cared for, the work is informed by case studies of individuals in the care system conducted in relation to academic and community research funded by the Wellcome Trust. The evolution of this innovative work and its intentions are discussed by Seers and Vasey, who recently co-curated Jo Spence and Oreet Ashery: Misbehaving Bodies at The Wellcome Collection (30 May 2019 – 26 January 2020) an exhibition exploring the representation of ageing and illness.
