In her exhibition All Tomorrow’s Stories, the Jenny Orchard delves into the commonalities between humans and animals.
The artist states: “Science tells us how close we are to other animals, we share the form of most of our organs with so many of them. Even those who are foreign to our eyes have bodies which, like us share a genetic code and DNA that goes back through time to beginning of life on the planet. We are the future and unknowable destiny of the planet itself, now that we can manipulate the code. I am both more and less than human through my interactions with our collective technology and consciousness. I want to make creatures that ask ‘Who am I?’ and ‘Who are You?’.”
Exhibition opens: 3–5pm Saturday 22 June 2019.
