Ultrasound of Therapy
Is it art, is it massage or is it therapy? Staalplaat's The Ultrasound of Therapy claims to be all three. Visitors lie in a hammock in order to be treated with sound by 'friendly sonic nurses' who attach loudspeakers to various parts of the body. The clinical environment was inspired by the ancient French hospital 'La Salle des Malades'. You can find out more here. Currently playing at The Cornerhouse in Manchester until July 30th. Please check here for surgery hours.
