Dying under your Eyes

What you’ll do
Come to a screening of 'Dying Under Your Eyes', a newly commissioned film by artist Oreet Ashery, whose work is currently on display in the Wellcome exhibition 'Misbehaving Bodies'.

This family portrait of end-of-life care includes footage from around the time of her father’s death. Through her personal experience, Ashery explores themes such as ageing, dying and mourning.

After the screening, there will be responses to the film by curator and researcher Helena Reckitt and Professor Stephen Wilson.

The artist will then join in the discussion and you will have the opportunity to ask questions.

We’ll be in the Forum. To get there, take the lift or stairs up to level 1 and then follow the signs through the ‘Being Human’ gallery.

This event will have live speech-to-text transcription for visitors who are deaf, deafened and hard of hearing. If you would like to come along, email us at access@wellcomecollection.org or call 020 7611 2222.
