The Atrium Gallery, St James's University Hospital
29 September 2009 - 6 January 2010
Kelly Cumberland's work explores the change and removal, growth and deterioration of the life and nature of a virus. Installations and objects demonstrate how something seemingly delicate and insubstantial can overwhelm its environment; whilst dissested drawings, cloth and paper works represent the paradoxical fragility and strength of microbiological and electronic structures.
Currently working with the Haematological Malignancy Diagnostic Service (HMDS) at St James Hospital in Leeds, she has been investigating Programmed Cell Death, which is one of the most important biological processes. These complex scientific ideas will be communicated through an 11 metre wall drawing in the Atrium Gallery, Bexley Wing, St James's University Hospital, Leeds.
