For Medical Art Work at the 6th ARS D³ click here
A new Dissection Drawing Session is organised on Friday 8 March (Ghent = NEW!) and Saturday 9 March 2013 (Antwerp) as part of the international ART RESEARCHES SCIENCE Program.
Specialists in animal (NEW!) and human anatomy will dissect and explain in close detail an upper and lower arm (deep frozen and thawed), an upper and lower leg (deep frozen and thawed), a full brain, a heart with its coronary vessels and two lungs with their network of bronchi,…There will be many moments to ask questions, to draw, to paint, to dissect and to reflect and communicate on the enormously beautiful but also very fragile human body.
There are not really any easels available, as it is a dissection room, but there are some tables, and some angle poised lights, and it is pretty bright in there in general. You can bring sketchbooks, large paper, small paper, watercolors, ink, pencils , whichever you prefer to work with. Some people work in biro or felt tip pen and have some beautiful results, so it's entirely up to you. The idea is to make some quick sketches at first , and get used to the atmosphere, we have a whole day there, firstly most people just look while the medical students and anatomists dissect, and then once the dissection has been brought to a point where people would like to sit down and draw, it is then placed on a stand so people can make more detailed drawings.
As this is a growing international art event, an overview exhibition and publication of the large amount of art work that has been produced and will be created will be organized in 2014, the 500th birthday year of the great anatomist Andreas Vesalius.
On behalf of the international and local organizing committees of these Dissection Drawing Sessions, BIOMAB vzw, we would like to ask all participants of today and of former marathons to contact their local program director and/or the Belgian organizers, to bring their final art work or a digital copy to Antwerp or sent the work in high resolution format afterwards to: jellenicolai[at]gmail.com.
