Helen Pynor and Peta Clancy are showing their collaborative work ‘The Body is a Big Place’ in Science Gallery London’s exhibition ‘BLOOD: Life Uncut,’ an exhibition exploring the essential, expressive and visceral nature of blood. ‘The Body is a Big Place’ explores organ transplantation and the ambiguous thresholds between life and death.
In this iteration, fresh pig’s blood continuously circulates around a functioning heart perfusion device, alongside video documentation of the artists’ previous live heart perfusion performance at Science Gallery Dublin. Large-scale video projections show members of an organ transplant community in Melbourne performing in the underwater space of a municipal swimming pool.
Exhibition continues to 01.11.2017
