Brainstorm | Investigating The Human Brain Through Art And Science

Headache (detail) | Helen Pynor

Autumn Twist | Andrew Carnie

My Soul | Katharine Dowson
The Brainstorm exhibition ... at GV Art in London ... consists of seven artists considering the human brain, alongside films of a neurological examination and an actual human brain from a multiple sclerosis patient. The different artworks showcase brains in different ways, some of which look like very realistic images of brain tissue and some of which are more fanciful. The gallery is one of the few places in Britain that's licensed to display human tissue, and the brain slices on display are displayed in accordance with a stringent set of rules.
