Drop-in event. An art installation consisting of paper sculptures, inspired by medical correspondence and leaflets linked to Human Papillomavirus (HPV), that aims to prompt conversation around the virus and positive diagnosis.
Being diagnosed with any medical condition may generate a wide range of reactions and feelings. This is the case for Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Patients often read their Private and Confidential letters alone, but what happens after that? Do they disclose their content, do they keep it for themselves? What happens to the words written on these pages?
Dr Caroline Verdier, Lecturer, School of Humanities, University of Strathclyde and Lou Sarabadzic, artist
