Conceiving histories (exhibition)
17 November, 2017, 10:00 am - 25 November, 2017, 8:00 pm
How can something that doesn’t happen have a history? How can there be a material trace of un-pregnancy in the archive? This exhibition explores this paradox, finding and considering a material history of pregnancy feigned, imagined, hidden and difficult to diagnose. ‘Conceiving histories’ is a collaboration between academic and literary historian, Isabel Davis, and visual artist, Anna Burel. From this collaboration emerge fantastical and fictional reworkings of archival materials, re-materialising with photography, sculpture and drawing the past of un-pregnancy.
This exhibition is open from Friday 17 November – Saturday 25 November (weekday openings 10:00-20:00, Saturday openings 10:00–17:00, closed Sunday)
