Known Body

Thursday, November 29Friday, December 14

Stop by the Library Gallery to see new prints by Ben Merritt.

Known Body is a selection of prints that revolve around the body in medicine and the ways bodily feeling intersects with language. There are aspects of illness experience that language cannot pierce; yet it is the avenue in which the patient is told to record their experience. How are ill bodies written about in medical texts, and how do patients communicate experiences in the restricted realm of language?
