Clare Park, winner of the Royal Photographic Society's 153rd International Print Exhibition, will be exhibiting her collaborative work ‘Breaking Form; Buz and Parkinson’s’ at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery from 25th March to 14th June 2011.
The striking images of Buz Williams, who has had Parkinson’s for 31 years, form a narrative photographic study developed over the past eighteen years within a context of its creators’ personal lives and shared professional backgrounds of theatre, movement and dance.
The NHNN which brings together specialists, researchers and patients, their families and carers, aims to share developments in the world of Parkinson's, particularly in the field of treatment innovation. Buz has had a relationship with the hospital since 1980. Placing himself in the public sphere and gaze gives Buz a
sense of power and self-recognition at a time when control is diminishing in his everyday life. Currently this progressive condition is incurable and affects 1 in 500 people within the UK.
April 11th - 17th is Parkinson’s Awareness Week held by the charity Parkinson’s UK who sponsored an exhibition of Breaking Form at the World Parkinson Congress 2010 in Glasgow.
NHNN, 33 Queen Square, London WC1N 3BG
Opening hours: 9.00am – 5.00pm Mon-Fri (lectures depending)
