Me, My Brain, and I

London Live Streamed Auction

Re-imagining the human brain through art. A group of top artists including, Tracey Emin, Gavin Turk, David Bailey, D*Face and Conrad Shawcrosshave come together to contribute to Me, My Brain and I, a collection of brain sculptures to be auctioned off with all proceeds going to Parkinson’s UK. 

Theatrical effects artist Schoony has created life-size fabricated brain sculptures for participating artists to use as a blank canvas, as we ask them to consider what their brain means to them. Alex Echo, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in early 2020, is among the world-class artists who have designed a brain sculpture in their own distinctive style. Other artists include Tracey Emin, Gavin Turk, David Bailey, D*Face and Conrad Shawcross.

The brains were first exhibited at The Other Art Fair in London in October 2021. In November this year, the works will be going under the hammer at world-renowned auction house Christie’s via a livestream, and will be sold to the highest bidder, with all money raised going towards our vital work towards new treatments and a cure. 

Parkinson's UK Director of Fundraising & Engagement, Paul Jackson-Clark, says: 

"Me, My Brain and I invites us all to consider our own brain, to visualise it as the source of all the things that make us 'us'. Our brains curate our lives, on the one hand acting as unique libraries, holding memories, experiences and skills, while on the other powering supercomputer-powered curiosity, creativity and innovation. 

We're delighted to be partnering with The Auction Collective and Christie’s with what we all believe is a beautiful, thought-provoking, and moving creative experience. We're indebted to the incredibly generous artists who are making this possible with a single shared aim, to raise funds for Parkinson's research and to find a cure." 

What is Parkinson’s? 
Parkinson’s is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world, and currently there is no cure. But at Parkinson’s UK we’re chasing down a cure. Investing in pioneering projects that could slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s. Discovering life-changing new treatments. And we aim to deliver the next new treatment in years not decades.
