Alongside the installation Table of Contents, Siobhan Davies will discuss her past, present and future work with collaborator and neuroscientist Jonathan Cole.
Jonathan Cole is a Consultant in Clinical Neurophysiology at Poole Hospital and a Professor in Medicine and Psychology at Bournemouth University. In addition to neuroscience research he has published several books on the experience of living with neurological impairment, including one on loss of movement and position sense. He has also collaborated with Andrew Dawson on a performance theatre piece on the consequences of loss of hand use, The Articulate Hand, and they are preparing a further piece on Chekhov’s visit to the penal colony on Sakhalin Island, The Russian Doctor. Since meeting Siobhan Davies some years ago they have been discussing the similarities and complementary nature of their approaches to the study of movement.
