The Body is a Big Place by Helen Pynor and Peta Clancy is a new media commission exploring the fluidity between bodily boundaries inherent to the organ transplantation process, the ambiguous boundary between life and death, and the complex and multilayered responses reported by organ transplant recipients.
Two performances featuring the reanimation of a pair of fresh pig hearts will be held at approximately 5pm on Mon 7 and Mon 21 of November, during the exhibition.
This installation, commissioned by Performance Space is a collaboration between artists Helen Pynor and Peta Clancy with sound by Gail Priest.
