LondonTown.com: Incredible exhibition examines science and art of crime detection

The Wellcome Collection unveils an exhibition exploring forensics for 2015.
LONDON, December 09, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- It's going to be a gruesome February for visitors to London's Wellcome Collection, when this thoughtful gallery dedicated to the overlap of science and art will open a major exhibition looking at the history, science and art of forensic medicine. Forensics: The Anatomy Of Crime (26 February-21 June 2015) will travel from crime scene to courtroom, across centuries and continents, exploring the specialisms of those involved in the delicate processes of collecting, analysing and presenting medical evidence. It draws out the stories of victims, suspects and investigators of violent crimes, and our enduring cultural fascination with death and detection. Not for the faint-hearted, the exhibition will be in the rich tradition of the Wellcome Collection, which explores challenging but fascinating subjects. The gallery is located on the Euston Road, close to St Pancras, Euston and King's Cross stations. For more on the area – and to find the cheapest hotels in London – see LondonTown.com.

Forensics will display original evidence, archival material, photographic documentation, film footage, forensic instruments and specimens, and is rich with artworks offering both unsettling and intimate responses to traumatic events. It will look at famous cases involving forensic advances, including the Dr Crippen trial and the Ruxton murders, as well as pioneers of forensic investigation and the voices of experts working in the field today. Science, historic artefacts – such as Victorian sketches from Jack The Ripper murder scenes – and contemporary artists will illuminate the topic in five sections, from ‘The Crime Scene”, “The Morgue”, “The Laboratory” and “The Search” to the “The Courtroom”. The exhibition will also look at how forensics has been viewed historically, right back to the ancient world.

Lucy Shanahan, the curator, says: “This exhibition gives alternative views of the forensic process from the CSI detections of popular fiction and television, while exploring the cultural fascination that the disciplines of forensic medicine inspire. Our journey from crime scene to courtroom takes in pioneers of scientific techniques that have revolutionised the way in which crimes are investigated, and offers visitors unexpected encounters with the changing relationship between medicine, law and society.” For more information, see LondonTown.com
