In response to the film ‘Hazel’, part of Jacqueline Donachie’s solo show: Deep in the Heart of Your Brain, Dr Mark Hamilton, Clinical Research Fellow (Institute of Molecular Cell and Systems Biology) at the University of Glasgow, will explain the genetically inherited illness, myotonic dystrophy, from both a medical and researched patient perspective to discuss the condition in relation to wider themes in the exhibition.
Highlighting the artwork ‘Hazel’, alongside recent advances in genetic research, Dr Hamilton will discuss art and medical partnerships and the role this has in future treatments.
Deep in the Heart of Your Brain is an exciting new commission for GoMA, supported by a Wellcome Trust Arts Award.
This solo exhibition by Jacqueline Donachie will include sculpture and drawings made in the last five years alongside new works developed out of a period of research with a group of women affected by myotonic dystrophy and made in collaboration with the UK Patient Registry at The John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre in Newcastle.
