A Woman Holding a Liver is a contemporary manifestation of the ancient ritual of haruspicy or liver divination. The piece for ‘Acts Re-Acts 4’ was in two parts: the first, an introduction to the history of liver divination, and the contextualisation of divination in relation to chance strategies in art, and then a divination of a lamb’s liver.


There is a blog post, as an introduction to the piece for the Wimbledon space blog:



ACTS RE-ACTS 4 is the fourth year of the project: A laboratory of performance, new media, workshops, lectures, discussions, events, interventions, seminars and installations, based at Wimbledon Space at Wimbledon College of Art, UAL.
