Mapping the Body

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Florence Nightingale travelled widely as a young woman. She visited France, Italy, Greece and Egypt and trained to be a nurse in Germany before sailing for Turkey and the Crimea. As well as the famous sights, she would visit hospitals where ever she went.

The journey of Florence's long life and her quest for improvements in nursing, the care of the sick and the status of women inspired the artist Susan Stockwell.

Susan's installation, Mapping the Body, can be seen throughout the museum.

Susan also worked with young women from Cotelands Pupil Referral Unit in Croydon during her residency at the museum.

With Susan they mapped their personal journeys in life-size drawings, and they created the sculpture "Flo" in her shape.
