    Watermans With Words: Scientific Pioneers

    In a double bill of two fascinating talks in our regular Watermans With Words series, we discover the true stories of Scientific Pioneers who have changed our world in very different ways from two excellent speakers.

    7pm Talk: The Butchering Art – Lister's Quest to Transform Victorian Medicine with Lindsey Fitzharris (1hr incl Q&A)

    Surgeons are miracle-workers. But it was not always so. In her book ‘The Butchering Art’ (Daily Mail, Guardian and Observer Books of the Year 2017 and winner of 2018 PEN/E.O Wilson Prize for Literary Science Writing) and this accompanying talk, medical historian Lindsey Fitzharris recreates the turning point when pioneering surgeon Lister transformed the harrowing practices common in Victorian operating theatre – known as the ‘gateways of death’ – ultimately leading to the vaunted surgical profession we know today. This is the story of a visionary British surgeon whose quest to unite science and medicine delivered us into the modern world – the safest time to be alive in human history.

    Dr. Lindsey Fitzharris is a bestselling author, and medical historian with a doctorate from the University of Oxford. Her debut book, The Butchering Art, won the PEN/E.O. Wilson Award for Literary Science in the United States and was shortlisted for both the Wellcome Book Prize and the Wolfson History Prize in the United Kingdom.

    8.30pm Talk: Black Scientists and Inventors with Tony Warner (1 hr 15 mins incl Q&A)

    Back by popular demand, Tony Warner from Black History Walks will present a talk which gives a fascinating and comprehensive run down of everyday appliances which were developed by Black people, and phenomenal scientific achievements that have gone unnoticed by the mainstream. He will speak of Black people's involvement and innovations in computer games,  car safety, secret technology, vaccinations ,torpedoes, computing, optometry, biology, mechanics…; he detail the origins of African castles and ancient African astronomy and name Black inventors who got ripped off. With an audio-visual presentation and an interactive style, tony's talks are illuminating, important, and truly memorable.

    Fountain Gallery event

  • 30 November -0001 - 31 August 2020Visual Arts/Film

    This exhibition is a new series art created during lockdown that explores the themes of repetition, meditation and contemplation

    The artwork consists of many thousands of shredded pieces. Some include photoluminescent pigments that have been an ongoing interest for the artist. Digital pixels in appearance but very much an analogue creative process.

    The practice of destroying something to be able to create something runs through the series.

    Visitors are invited to bring their own papers, photos and documents that can be shredded at the exhibition for the artist to use in future artworks. A symbolic act to let go of something that they no longer want in their life that takes on a new life.

    A passion for making art was awakened whilst studying counselling and psychotherapy. Mr Mr Pearce has attended the Richmond School of Painting and also numerous courses run by the Slade School of Fine Art during their annual summer school, including their Foundation course.

    Artistic influences include Lee Krasner and Briget Riley. Other influences include psychotherapy, in particular the archetypes of Jung and Assagioli's inclusion of spirituality into his theories of the human psyche. Optical illusions, psychedelia, electronic music and the repetition of minimal classical music also have an influence.

    Exhibition is open (but gates are closed)

    Due to COVID we are restricting the numbers of people this weekend for everyone’s safety. Therefore, the gates will be kept closed this weekend while the exhibition is on.
