Fabrica Vitae in Zykanthos, Greece

During the Vesalius Continuum in Zykanthos, Greece, the Fabrica Vitae exhibit made it’s debut and first stop of the touring exhibit. The intention is to showcase artwork in the spirit of Andreas Vesalius and question what we consider the role of art and anatomy in this modern world. The Vesalius Continuum, commemorated the 500th Anniversary of Andreas Vesalius’ birth in Brussels, but also the mystery surrounding his death and grave in Zakynthos. During the three days, speakers from around the globe presented talks about Vesalius’ life, the Fabrica Vitae, the impact of his book on anatomy teaching and our contemporary perception of the human body.  I am very humbled and thankful to have been able to attend and submit four pieces to the show.
