Creating sculptures and installations from caul fat (the tissue that encases pig stomachs and intestines) and other animal organs, artist Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva draws attention to parts of the body we would sometimes rather forget.

Internal Beauty is an exhibition resulting from Hadzi-Vasileva’s residency in biomedical research labs (funded by Wellcome Trust), considering nutrition, healthy diet, our gut and how man-made, microscopic materials can fix problems.

The artworks balance the fragility of our bodies, reflecting on the delicate nature of engineered materials being developed by Dr Richard Day, Dr Giles Major, Professor Alastair Forbes and associates, at University College London, University of East Anglia and University of Nottingham.

The exhibition is free and there is no need to book.
