Just received my copy of animaladies, too soon to be able to re-read my essay, but looking forward to reading the other contributions to this exciting book.
Quite thrilled to be included in the line up for WEAD’s online exhibition feminist tEChnOart, thanks to curator/artist Isabella La Rocca.
Thrilled to be in such great company in this special edition of the Animal Studies Journal on Dairy. My paper discusses my current research and work in progress ‘bloodlines’. Download a copy.
The program is out, the book ‘animaladies’ is printed and ready to be launched at Animaladies II. I’m really looking forward to speaking about the developments in my work – ‘bloodlines: tracing paths from bodies to biotechnologies’.
It’s an amazing line up and I’m really proud to be an invited speaker among these scholars.
A short artist profile on my work ‘Skin and flesh’ features in Matter Matters: Surfaces, Antennae The Journal of Nature in Visual Culture, issue no. 43. Here’s some screen shots – the article can be freely downloaded here http://www.antennae.org.uk/
Really love the design of this full cover – with boobscape wrapping around the spine. I’m very excited for this book to be launched at Animaladies II, University of Wollongong, in December 2018, where I’ll also be an invited speaker – talking about my propositional new artwork: ‘porous boundaries: mammalian motherhood, biotechnologies and other entanglements’ which will be published in the Animal Studies Journal later in the year (hopefully). This book features an amazing line up of writings by scholars, artists, creative writers etc. See: https://www.bloomsbury.com/us/animaladies-9781501342165/ for the table of contents.
My new work is focusing on the relationships between the dairy industry (boobscape), the collection of ‘co-products’ such as foetal-bovine serum, placental tissues, slink leather from foetal bodies (slink), the demand of these foetal tissue and blood products in cellular technology in particular in-vitro meat and bio-fabricated leather. Using my pre-existing sculptures, and new forms, I will trace the connections between these industries, as well as continue my focus on the broader environmental impact of the dairy industry, in particular the leaching of excess nutrients into the waterways/water table.
