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:
