28 – 29 April
Of Blooded Things, a solo exhibition of oil paintings, features as one of more than 150 exhibits within Imperial Festival. The public are invited to go behind-the-scenes and explore the latest research and innovations from Imperial College London through interactive demonstrations, workshops and live experiments. Creativity and culture will also be at the forefront with vibrant live musical and dance performances, a theatrical performance and exhibition exploring the boundaries between medicine and the arts.
This exhibition of oil paintings brings an exciting fine art platform to the Festival where world-leading research at Imperial College London is brought into the public arena. Morris’ connections with Imperial College and Aix-Marseille University facilitate the profound effect of the language of science upon the visceral senses, becoming a medium through which decisions are made in her painting. Working in multiple layers of glaze, she enacts ‘lines’ as biomarkers or references to the human body. In an era of advancing technologies that mark a huge chronological shift within the new sciences, Morris constructs a narrative of sensations in which the scientific, and notions of ‘the self’ intersect with historical references .
