Plastic Viscera:

Reconstruct & Regenerate


An Interdisciplinary Art & Science




Intersecting art and science, Plastic Viscera explored emerging research into reconstructive and regenerative medicine. The event featured accounts of the 'guinea pig club' alongside the continued advances occurring by researchers and surgeons. The event drew together leading scientists, clinicians and artists to inform our conceptions of the human body.


The symposium was fully open to the public and aimed to draw new audiences to the subject, encourage the development of dialogue across the arts and sciences and facilitate networking opportunities between like-minded professionals.
