Medicine Corner is a programme of activity curated by Blot! for Wellcome Collection London, exploring India’s rich plurality of cultures of medicine, healing and well-being. It ranges across time, regions and knowledge systems. Through exhibitions, music, media arts and live events across the country, incurably curious audiences in India will encounter an aesthetically seductive, intellectually rich mix of art, science and the extraordinary in everyday life.
We were commissioned to make some artwork for the project that focuses on the various anecdotes, philosophies and challenges of the individual medical practitioners and patients. We took note of the references given by Blot! when they visited these practitioners and the experience they had during the visit, to help us come up with 3 artworks based on a Dentist, a traditional Bone-setter and a Sex adviser.
