Royal Free Hospital – Ruth Uglow Commission

The Contemporary Art Society Consultancy team worked with the Royal Free Hospital to curate and commission a series of drawings from artist Ruth Uglow for their new Institute of Immunity and Transplantation. The artist was able to observe research carried out at the institute and was inspired by the microbiological processes in the creation of her work.

“Seeing  the shape of the stem cells and the way they move under the microscope inspired me to think about the way they attach themselves to the scaffold to create the new form. I wanted the drawings to envelop the viewer and draw them within the inner-space of this micro-architectural framework.” Ruth Uglow
