Rosamond Purcell – Double Identity: Anomaly and the Imagination

March 30, 2017, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
New York Academy of Medicine, 1216 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street
New York, NY

Acclaimed photographer Rosamond Purcell has been interested in fantastical imagery from early modern books for much of her career. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, Holland's spectacular cabinets of curiosity-- collections of natural and manmade wonders of the world--featured doubles: placing a two-headed kitten next to a double carrot, conjoined twins, or an apple with two heads. Similar anomalies are found across the kingdoms of life. This talk will cover ideas about hybrid beings, the illusion of the monstrous and the fluidity of natural forms.
