If you will be in Liverpool, London or Dresden in the next month I hope you may get chance to pop in to see some of my works.
John Hunt and my work ‘Heirloom’ will have it's first UK exhibition at FACT, Liverpool as part of Rob La Frenais curated new group show, “No Such Thing as Gravity” from 10th Nov until late January 2017.
It's the first exhibition of Heirloom in the UK, and the first exhibition I've had at FACT, so this also adds to some of the challenges of the work. As some of you know its Director is my husband and father of children who are the subjects in Heirloom.
All the people involved in making Heirloom in the UK are based in Liverpool, so it's a chance for all involved in the development of this work to see it live. Because it's local to John and myself, we can nurse the work as it grows if needed.
When shown in Austria or Denmark we had to feed our instructions for sustaining life, replacing solutions because cells grew faster than anticipated, or fixing triple heart bypass pumps, all over the web. So having it on our doorsteps is a great opportunity to start developing this to the next stage, and work more closely with Face Lab, part of LJMU.
Forma, creative producers based in London, have taken on Heirloom to tour over the next couple of years. We have already bookings for Birmingham Open Media, the Waag Socieity Netherlands, Cynetart Dresden and another possible exhibition in Denmark for 2017.
There will be an ethics debate triggered by Heirloom and hosted by FACT in Janruary and Face Lab will be running workshops during the exhibition period.
“No Such Thing as Gravity” also hosts the launch of my new work MyPods. More about this available online at the launch date of 10th November when the development of a new product becomes a live campaign as artwork.
Palaces is to be exhibited in Imperial College, Exhibition Row, London from 18th – 30th November
Palaces was developed in collaboration with Sara Rankin. This exhibition also marks the end of this award period for Sara and it is the last booked exhibition of Palaces in the UK after touring since 2010. It’s another opportunity to become part of this growing sculpture.
PLEASE SEND YOUR MILK TEETH in to Imperial college though as the old PO Box is not currently in use.
Palaces was commissioned by the Bluecoat Arts Centre Liverpool and funded by The Wellcome Trust, myself and Imperial College London.
