Join artist Natalie Ryan to discover more about her solo exhibition Imaging the Dead.

Imaging the Dead presents a series of photographs that depict anatomical veterinary specimens alongside corresponding sculptural works. These works explore the idea of the specimen as portrait and further the artist’s investigation into the connections between art and science.

About the Artist >

Natalie Ryan's practice explores themes that surround the aesthetic representation of the cadaver and natural sciences throughout Western history and their inclusion in contemporary art. Drawing from existing methodologies used for displaying these elements, she is interested in the process of imaging the natural world and the exchange between science and art that has allowed this. Ryan has worked with anatomical collections held in the Veterinary Department at the University of Melbourne and lectured in Anatomical Drawing working with human cadavers at Monash University. Ryan holds a PhD at Monash University Imaging the Dead: The Cadaver in Western Culture and Contemporary Art.
