Brief Exchange - Final Submission

Here's my final submission to Brief Exchange, as usual I was working right up to the deadline!

I submitted a short rationale as well as follows:

"Nature vs Nurture".

Research on the brief quickly led to the dark topics of eugenics and human animal husbandry.  In these debates the female body and foetus are often reduced to delivery mechanisms and products.  The resulting work references DNA and incorporates female and foetal imagery to allude to these debates.

I'm really looking forward to the exhibition and seeing the other work!  It's all the brainchild of the very talented Noeleen Doheny and the follow up to last year's Full Circle exhibition. Check out the lovely poster below...
