This exhibition explores the life-giving potential of ‘discarded’ body parts and their relationship to myths, history, cutting edge stem cell research and notions of what constitutes informed consent.
The art works are sculptural, incorporating milk teeth donated by children and bones and fat from living, consenting donors.
Wasted is produced by Gina Czarnecki in collaboration with Professor Sara Rankin, Imperial College London. The body, its limits and unexplored possibilities for self-regeneration form the basis of a four year body of research culminating in this ground breaking exhibition.
