Esther Leslie & Melanie Jackson
Banner Repeater, Grand Union, Primary
181 x 260mm
The work comprises animation, sculpture, and a graphic novel with writing by Melanie Jackson and Esther Leslie, taking us on a journey of lactic abstractions, through the webs of bio-invasion and collective fantasy that interconnect various life forms through milk, its technologies and representations. The ontologies of species and gender have always been shaped by our relations with this primal liquid, and ensuring a ready supply has driven research in genetics, fertility and robotics. It is now open for radical transformation as new bio-organisms emerge, and real science merges with the fantastic.
Deeper in the Pyramid is a project developed with Grand Union, Birmingham, Primary, Nottingham and Banner Repeater, London.
