Welcome to the Abnormal website, which functions as an online catalogue for the Abnormal exhibition and as a Home Page for the associated work. Abnormal developed from Ju Gosling aka ju90's artist's residency at the National Institute of Medical Research (NIMR), which took place between 2006 - 2007. Funded by the Wellcome Trust, the residency explored ideas about normality, and asked whether there is a 'Scientific Model of Disability' that is distinct from the 'Medical Model of Disability'? The exhibition toured nationally from 2008-2012, click here for further details.
Click here to find out more about Ju's practice by reading her Abnormal Conversation with Professor Jim Hunter, Deputy Principal, Arts Institute Bournemouth, which took place while the exhibition toured to Bournemouth in spring 2009. Click here to find out more about the relationship between the exhibition and wider scientific themes and art practice by reading Ju's speech to the Superhuman: Revolution of the Species symposium in Melbourne on 23 November 2009.
