24 Portraits: Recovering and Reimagining Women's Labour

Fri 1 November 2019 - Fri 7 February

Department of Pathology

Emma Copley has created a site-specific installation of painted portraits of women who currently work in all areas of the Department of Pathology at the University of Cambridge including laboratory managers, academics, cleaners, lecturers, administrators and technicians.

Her aim is to celebrate and address the representation of women working in all types of jobs in this department. After researching how many women work in the Department of Pathology, and what that work entails; she photographed a small selection of them and from these photographs created a series of 24 painted portraits. The portraits are painted in black paint on transparent Perspex and installed in a large window. The light coming in the window will allow the image to be seen, similar to images created in stained glass.

By creating these paintings that represent women carrying out all forms of labour in the department, she has intended to elevate these sometimes undervalued images of women and their job roles. By placing the portrait installation in between the existing memorial/commemorative bronze relief portraits of men, she wants to create visual connections between both sets of images, enabling the viewer to confront the visual representation of women in the department.

Visitors must check in at the ground floor for a visitors pass and be escorted to view the art work. Large groups please call in advance.
