Foreign Bodies, Common Ground

  • English 15 mins
  • Director | Barry J. Gibb

'Foreign Bodies, Common Ground' has set up six artist residencies in six Wellcome Trust-funded research centres as a way of teasing out some of the more personal, philosophical, cultural and political dimensions of health research. This exciting project is born out of Wellcome Collection's desire to engage the curious public globally with the health research that the Trust funds -- in Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Thailand, Vietnam and the UK.

This film by Barry J Gibb, made to accompany the artists' work and support the project, provides a whistle-stop tour of each artist, their early thoughts about their residency and a rare opportunity to see health research from a more connected, global perspective.
