Lessons on Limberg

Alexander Limberg was a reconstructive plastic surgeon believing that all surgeons, prior to performing operations, should practice procedures using select materials. Rubber, linen, tin, paper and plywood were all used by Limberg as a method of experimenting and visualising surgical outcomes.

Lessons on Limberg was a collection commissioned by The Wellcome Trust exploring surgical practice through simulating procedures in cloth. The project formed part of the Skin exhibition at Wellcome Collection in 2010.
