NIAGARA FALLS, ON, March 31 /CNW Telbec/ - Premier Exhibitions, Inc. in collaboration with Serge Grimaux and Niagara Theatre & Entertainment are proud to present BODIES...THE EXHIBITION, An Exhibition of Real Human Bodies at Niagara Exhibition Centre located at Stanley Ave & Highway 420. This scientific exhibition displays whole and partial body specimens that have been meticulously dissected and preserved through an innovative process. It will open on May 28 and will be presented in Niagara Falls until September 6.
To date, more than 15 million visitors in New York, Las Vegas, Washington, London, São Paulo, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Vienna and Prague have been astounded by this remarkable exhibition, which helps us better understand the amazing machine that is the human body.
"A 3D anatomy book! This exhibition is sure to fascinate visitors. It gives us the opportunity to examine and more fully understand the incredible "machine" that is the human body", says promoter Serge Grimaux. "BODIES...THE EXHIBITION has packed houses in major cities around the world. On the heels of its tremendous success in Quebec City and in Montreal, the residents and visitors of Niagara Falls will now have the opportunity to experience this amazing Exhibition!"
"Every so often an event, a production or an exhibition comes along that is entertaining and educational. BODIES...THE EXHIBITION is mostly definitely such an event. It is not only educational and entertaining it is truly exhilarating. I am proud to be part of the team that is bringing this remarkable Exhibition to Niagara." added Linus Hand of Niagara Theatre & Entertainment
"The educational impact of this exhibition is incommensurable," affirmed Dr. Roy Glover, Professor Emeritus of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the University of Michigan and Chief Medical Director of BODIES...THE EXHIBITION. "For centuries, the medical world has explored and studied the internal functions of the human body using real bodies. Today, thanks to this Exhibition, the public, too, now has access to this same in depth knowledge."
BODIES...THE EXHIBITION takes visitors through galleries providing an up-close look inside the skeletal, muscular, reproductive, respiratory, circulatory and other systems of the human body. Many of the whole body specimens are dissected in athletic poses, allowing the visitor to relate to everyday activities. In addition, authentic human specimens illustrate the damage caused to organs by over-eating and lack of exercise. A healthy lung is featured next to a black lung ravaged by smoking in a vivid comparison more powerful than any text book image. This exhibition alters the way people see themselves, and ultimately, makes them consider and adopt a healthier lifestyle. Its purpose is to inform, empower, fascinate and inspire the visitor.
The specimens in the Exhibition have been preserved using a specific procedure known as 'plastination'. This revolutionary, yet relatively simple, technique permanently preserves human tissue using liquid silicone rubber that is treated and hardened. The specimens are then carefully prepared by medical professionals. The end result is a rubberized specimen, preserved to the cellular level, showcasing the complexity of the body's many bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and organs. The full-body specimens can take more than a year to prepare, representing several thousands of hours!
