IN-GALLERY INSIGHTS TALK WITH ORON CATTS AND IONAT ZURR  
Thursday 15 Jun | 7:30pm

Join us for a special in-gallery talk with artists Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr on 15 June, 7:30pm. They will discuss the use of tissue technologies as a medium for artistic expression through their Tissue Culture & Art Project, with a particular focus on their work Semi-Living Worry Dolls.

Inspired by the Guatemalan worry dolls given to children to whisper their worries and concerns to, the Semi-Living Worry Dolls were the first tissue engineered sculptures to be presented alive in a gallery in 2000, and are now shown in HUMAN+. These evocative objects are a tangible example that brings into question deep rooted perceptions of life and identity, concept of self, and the position of the human in regard to other living beings and the environment.
