Bodies Of Knowledge

This film is a video documentation of the workshop Bodies Of Knowledge run by artist Laura Durward. Participants explore the Petrie Museum's collection using language and clay.

Come and explore the many stories from the Petrie Museum’s collection with artist Laura Durward. Together we can sculpt the past, as we unlearn the museum’s existing narratives.

Participants will be led through a series of exercises where they will unpack this incredible collection all the while questioning the agency of museums and the bodies that occupy them.
Directed, filmed and edited by Omar Barchetta.
