www.performancespace.com.au/2011/body-is-a-big-place/

‘The Body is a Big Place’ is the result of a 2-year collaboration between artists Peta Clancy and Helen Pynor, with sound by Gail Priest and curation by Bec Dean. The exhibition explores organ transplantation with a particular focus on questions of personal identity and the blurred border between life and death in transplantation processes.

The installation includes a 5-channel video projection shot in the underwater environment of a swimming pool, performed by individuals who have had experiences of organ transplantation. In conjunction will be a heart perfusion system, where fresh pig hearts obtained from an abattoir will be reanimated in 2 special performances.
