Medicine in Art is another exhibition in the series that confronts terms permeating the public sphere of reference with the viewpoint of the artist. Medicine is present throughout human life and impacts on all its aspects. Medicine offers help and cure, while putting us to task and inspiring reflection. The connotations it has are, above all, illness, pain and therapeutic treatment. Another theme is physical wasting and death. Illness goes hand‑in‑hand with care‑giving and compassion and this is the area of medicine that the patient and doctor share. Medicine is also a science, which in its vast scope comprises pharmaceutical, biological and psychological experimentation, dealing with the ethical issues that ensue. This scientific aspect also includes the psychology of illness understood as the relationship between the state of the mind and the state of the physical body.
