A short talk on the current exhibition by Philip Zegerman (Biochemistry), in the galleries.
FREE, come along, no booking required
Philip Zegerman is a specialist in DNA replication. He will talk about how Antony Gormley’s work inspires fascination with the workings and resilience of the human body.
Philip Zegerman earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Cambridge, where he later also pursued a PhD in the lab of Tony Kouzarides at the Gurdon Institute. For his postdoctoral work, he switched fields from chromatin modifications to DNA replication, and joined John Diffley’s lab at Cancer Research UK, at Clare Hall in London. In 2009, Philip moved back to Cambridge to start his own group at the Gurdon Institute. He is an EMBO Young Investigator, and his lab is interested in how the initiation of DNA replication is regulated.
Antony Gormley is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations and public artworks that investigate the relationship of the human body to space. His work has developed the potential opened up by sculpture since the 1960s through a critical engagement with both his own body and those of others in a way that confronts fundamental questions of where human beings stand in relation to nature and the cosmos. Gormley continually tries to identify the space of art as a place of becoming in which new behaviours, thoughts and feelings can arise.
