Group exhibition of works from the Hybrid Bodies project including Heart of the Matter and Cadenza, both of which were remade for this exhibition.
Since 2010 four artists, (Alexa Wright GB; Andrew Carnie GB; Ingrid Bachmann CA and Catherine Richards CA) have had access to an innovative research study exploring the process of emotionally and psychologically incorporating a transplanted heart. They have worked as part a larger interdisciplinary team, based at Toronto General Hospital, led by Canadian Cardiologist, Dr Heather Ross and British philosopher, Dr Margrit Shildrick and other scientific partners. The project is highly innovative in that artistic research has been undertaken not only in response to, but also in parallel with, the scientific research. The artists and scientists have been in dialogue throughout the research process, which has also been opened up to heart transplant patients, their friends and families. The first series of artworks to come out of the Hybrid Bodies project were exhibited at KKW, Leipzig, Germany in August 2016.
