Paddy Hartley
The Cost of Life
Oct 13, 2021 – Jan 23, 2022
Museum Tinguely / Pharmacy Museum
Basel, Switzerland

An exhibition in collaboration with Museum Tinguely and the Pharmacy Museum Basel, commenting on the progress of medicine and its manifold – sometimes contradictory – consequences for humanity.

In the exhibition The Cost of Life: A perspective on health by Paddy Hartley, commissioned by Roche on the occasion of its 125th anniversary, the British artist Paddy Hartley reflects on the topic of risk in medicine and research. His artistic commentary on medical progress makes tangible the efforts of humanity around health and fighting disease. Both topics are of essential significance in the artist’s work. His view on medical development allows an approach to its – sometimes contradictory – consequences for humanity.

We see ghostly figures and happy families; we see actors acting, and everyday folks acting up; we see real and imagined worlds. (more…)
