John A Douglas will be exhibiting the two channel video installation, Circles of Fire (variations) in his first major international group exhibition at the new Science Gallery London titled SpareParts: Rethinking Human Repair, curated by Stephanie Delcroix. The installation will also be shown with the two glass objects, L’Intrus nos 1 & 2 made in collaboration with glass artist Nadege Desgenetez.
The SPARE PARTS season will explore the art, science, ethics and technology that enables human repair and alteration. It will consider the emotional and psychological aspects of living with a replacement organ or limb; organic or engineered.
Developed alongside scientists from King’s College London, the free exhibition and accompanying events programme will invite visitors to question whether ‘spare parts’ can exist outside the biological body, or whether our bodies can be a sum of independent parts that are regenerated, enhanced, donated or altered.
The Exhibition Opens Friday February 28 – May 12 Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 6pm
