BODY CLOCKS
2022-2023

Solo exhibition at Novo Nordisk Foundation Centre for Basic Metabolic Research (CBMR), Copenhagen, DK

Made possible by CBMR’s International Postdoctoral Program and a Production Residency grant from Statens Værksteder for Kunst [Danish Art Workshops].

A solo exhibition exploring time and the body, the entanglement of circadian rhythms and planetary motions. 
 
The exhibition presents a series of four new art works installed at CBMR that re-imagine the body clock through the artist’s lens.

Developed over two years of collaboration with Medical Museion post-doc researcher Kristin Hussey and chronobiologists at CBMR.  Body Clocks uses the film Time Animals as its starting point, to present art back into the scientific center that inspired it. Made in response to the architecture of the centre and displayed in different locations throughout it, the works
use different materials and processes, aiming to provoke and inspire scientists to ask new questions about their research.

Protocols, one of the works, was developed and produced at Statens Værksteder for Kunst [Danish Art Workshops]. An account of this process can be found in their project archives.
