Where do we come from? What are we made of? Why are we here?
These are the biggest questions we as human beings have every single day.
Imagine Exhibitions, the producers of the recent Titanic: The Exhibition, have once again put together a stunning and thought-provoking exhibition with Real Bodies: The Exhibition.
Real Bodies: The Exhibition uses over 200 anatomical human specimens to offer a unique perspective on the human body and the intricate structures which work within us all in perfect unison every moment of our lives.
The exhibition consists of ten approachable galleries, each themed after a different system of the human anatomy such as; Breathe which explores the respiratory system, Rhythm which reveals the delicate interconnectedness of the circulatory system, Love which presents the science of physical attraction, and more.
Whilst walking through and studying each installation of the exhibit you become fascinated by the wondrous nature of the human body.
As you learning about the interconnectedness of the various systems you can easily forget these are real human specimens. When the realisation hits you that these are the bodies of deceased people there is an added weight of emotions tied to the experience suddenly making this exhibition all the more compelling, poignant and unforgettable.
Until Oct 1. The Byron Kennedy Hall, Entertainment Quarter, 122 Lang Road, Moore Park. $19-$33+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.realbodiesexhibition.com.au
