Jo Spence and Oreet Ashery: Misbehaving BodiesTwo artists who have lived with chronic illnesses explore how debilitating disease can shape the way we think about the body, family and identity at the Wellcome Collection. In Misbehaving Bodies photographer Jo Spence documents her diagnosis of breast cancer, her unflinching photographs are displayed alongside Oreet Ashery's award-winning mini-series Revisiting Genesis, 2016, which explores death and dying in the digital era. Exploring the therapeutic potential of photography, Jo Spence's The Picture of Health? 1982-86 shows her journey from diagnosis to treatment over a four-year period. Combining moving image and performance, Oreet Ashery uses augmented reality gravestones and avatars to comment on vulnerability, mourning and loss.
