In 2015 my entire genome was sequenced from a vial of my blood. The genetic information contained in my DNA (some 3.2 billion letters) was delivered to me on a cloud-based server where it is stored, ready for viewing, possible analysis, or predictive diagnosis. My current artistic practice seeks to negotiate viewing the body in a disembodied state, and examine the metaphoric life of DNA.

Opening Night Friday 23 September 6 pm.

Gallery opening hours Tuesday to Saturday 10-4. Closed Monday and Sunday.
