Panacea: (n) A solution or remedy for all difficulties or diseases. – origin Greek panakeia.
Can artists provoke change in society? Can art objects become tools to improve our lives? Panacea: the art of wellbeing is an evolving, expandable and travelling artwork, designed to function as a universal formula to cure social, economic and political problems. At the core of this experiment is the Panacea Model, a maquette of an idealised health paradise, constructed by all three artists and made from medical packaging and refuse. Representing a ‘global panacea’, the Panacea Model offers both generic and specific solutions to health and lifestyle problems
