I will be doing an online workshop with the Royal College of Physicians for Open House, to explore human-environment binaries through the gut, on Saturday 19 September 2020, 11am - 12pm.
The workshop draws on my artwork and research into the ancient practice of extispicy – divination using the entrails. You will discover more about my art practice and the practice of extispicy, find and share materials in your local environment that resemble our own internal structures, and consider how our guts connect to our external environment over a gut-friendly snack.
We will explore the thresholds between our bodies, in particular our guts, and the natural and built environment, to re-conceptualise these seemingly boundaried entities. Through our activities we will explore and problematise human-environment binaries.
It is free to attend, but places are limited. For more information and to see other events, see the link for RCP’s Open House event page, https://history.rcplondon.ac.uk/event/open-house-london
