Cast a Cold Eye on Life, on Death: The Remake: Medicalised Death in ICU
Fiona Davies undertook a series of performative lectures within her recent exhibition Cast a Cold Eye on Life, on Death: The Remake: Medicalised Death in ICU. This was Davies's examination exhibition, the culmination of four years of practice-led research into medicalised death in ICU. The exhibition involved a series of installations, object-based works, performances and interactive works. In each performative lecture, Davies led a small group of viewers through these works, involved them in activities and encouraged them (if they wished to do so) to participate in conversations about medicalised death.
'Cast a Cold eye on Life, on Death' is a quote by WB Yeats.
