Julie McNamara has been examining the collections both hidden and on display to record what becomes of the bad, the mad and the plain unruly in our midst. Touring museums in June, this interactive piece is a great celebration of defiantly different humans.
Hold the Hearse! was originally commissioned as part of 'Exceptional and Extraordinary: Unruly Bodies and Minds in the Medical Museum' - a Research Centre for Museums and Galleries project co-ordinated by Jocelyn Dodd and Richard Sandell.
Walter Riddle and Mad Mary are on the run. Desperate to evade Hunter's henchmen, they hide amongst the collections in the old Museum. If you've a penchant for grime, gruesome grave robberies and grisly murder ballads, this extraordinary tale is all yours!
