Exploring ageing and bereavement

This life sized, wire mesh sculpture of a human body is part of an exhibition about loss, ageing, and memories.

The artist, Lucy Campbell-Maguire, is a GP and a hospice doctor in Manchester, who admits to being fascinated with death. Complementing the wire sculptures are large scale colour photos of her parents' skin, which demonstrate the ageing process.

Dr Campbell-Maguire says that the exhibition “poses questions around the themes of how we perceive ageing, and how it is to live with the ‘ghosts' of those we have lost.”
