Impressions on tour: Murray Ballard at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, Scunthorpe

Sat, 31st Mar, 2018

Exhibition on tour:
20-21 Visual Arts Centre, Scunthorpe, 31 March to 9 June 2018

Don't miss the chance to see Murray Ballard's The Prospect of Immortality on tour to 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, Scunthorpe.

The Prospect of Immortality offers an amazing photographic insight into the practice of cryonics: the process of freezing a human body after death in the hope that scientific advances may one day bring it back to life.


Ballard’s images take the viewer on a journey through the tiny but dedicated international cryonics community, from the English seaside retirement town of Peacehaven; to the high-tech laboratories of Arizona; to the rudimentary facilities of Kriorus, just outside Moscow.  Worldwide there are approximately 200 ‘patients’ stored permanently in liquid nitrogen, with a further thousand people signed up for cryonics after death.

The Prospect of Immortality is an Impressions touring exhibition curated by Anne McNeill, to read more about the exhibition click here.
