9am - 5pm

Photographer Theo Deproost and physician associate Debbie Jegede present stunning reinterpretations of the Royal College of Physicians’ medical and fine art collections.

Unfamiliar: a new look at the Royal College of Physicians’ (RCP) collections.

The RCP museum is delighted to introduce photographer Theo Deproost and physician associate Debbie Jegede. Together, Theo and Debbie identified objects from within the depths of our museum stores which intrigue, surprise and delight them. Debbie’s clinical curiosity and Theo’s creative eye bring together the worlds of medicine and art, as they reinterpret items from our medical and fine art collections. The stunning results are displayed in the exhibition, alongside the original objects to highlight their hidden richness and beauty.

Theo’s photographs offer new, altered perspectives that challenge our understanding and impression of supposedly inert museum objects. Theo and Debbie invite us to approach these objects and images with a curious mind, to experience them in unexpected ways, and reinterpret them through the lens of our own experiences.

Open in person at the Royal College of Physicians, the exhibition will be accompanied by an exciting programme of in person and virtual events.

The exhibition is free to explore during our general opening hours - no booking is required.
