Gallery 11, Episode 1 - Meeting Sixty-Two
Cally Beaton, who worked at Comedy Central and MTV, and who brought South Park and Sponge Bob Square Pants to Britain, offers up the entire population of the Netherlands, because she lived there in her early 20s and wants to offer up things in Dutch society: for example, they have more bicycles than people; and they used to be the smallest people in Europe and now they are the largest.
Sally Phillips, star of shows like Smack the Pony, Green Wing, all three Bridget Jones movies, and radio series Clare in the Community, provides a Museum cosy: in other words, she wishes to yarn-bomb the museum: a form of feminine graffiti.
Suzy Lishman, the president of the Royal College of Pathologists, co-authored The History of Pathology in 50 Objects, and who has been desperate to demonstrate that not all pathology is like CSI, gives the museum Richard III's feet bones, because they were missing due to destruction by Victorian building work when his skeleton was discovered. He was not hunchbacked, but his spine was S-shaped.
