The project builds on a collaborative research project between Newcastle University, Montpellier University, La Panacée: Centre d’art contemporaine, Montpellier, and the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Montpellier Agglomeration. In an exhibition staged in University of Montpellier’s medieval libraries, a series of newly commissioned artworks were presented in response to artefacts held in their historical scientific, medical and art collections.
