Post Mortem

15 October – 20 December 2015 .   Rommelaere Building, University of Ghent, Belgium.

Fabrica Vitae highlighted and explored the perception of the human body by scientists and artists.  In Post Mortem thirty of the artists made new work in dialogue with the spaces, theme and scientific artefacts from the collections of the University of Ghent.

A team of curators led by Pascale Pollier developed the concept of Post Mortem as a fitting ending to the Fabrica Vitae tour.


The photographs show The Space Between sculpture in the autopsy room in the Post Mortem exhibition. The sculpture is in two parts with the anchor on the autopsy table and the pair of crow wings in the corner.

In tribute to an extraordinary collaboration between art and science this booklet has been compiled. Scan the pages to glimpse into a world where the dead body relives through reexamination, analysis, creativity and documentation.

I felt deeply privileged to join the collaboration.
