Electricity: The Spark of LifeDon't be shocked... the Wellcome Collection's new spring 2017 exhibition, Electricity, may be full of surprises but it's also an education. It gave life to Frankenstein's monster but electricity can be used as a life-giving force in real life too. This exhibition shows the developments in the application of electricity in healthcare as well as its contradictory life-giving and death-dealing powers. Alongside three new commissions by international artists John Gerrard, Camille Henrot and Bill Morrison, there are over 100 objects from ancient spark-inducing amber to exhibits helping us imagine what the future of electricity might look like.

 

About Wellcome Collection

A major and fascinating cultural venue, the Wellcome Collection combines three galleries: 'Medicine Man', 'Medicine Now' and 'special exhibitions'. In addition you'll find the famous Wellcome Library, cafe, bookshop and a 'forum' to consider issues of science, health and human identity. The 1,300 objects on display show the great variety of considerations that these topics include. More about Wellcome Collection
