KINSHIP: BLACK BOX, Summerhall Gallery, Edinburgh

    Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


    Exhibition dates: Saturday, 9 April - Thursday, 9 June 2022
    Venue: Summerhall, Edinburgh

    For Edinburgh Science Festival, BLACK BOX presents a 120 minute programme of 11 short films on the theme of KINSHIP. Focusing on the different forms of relation that begin with the body, from viral and cellular interactions to the familial relationships affected by genetic disease, these films allow us to contemplate the revolutions of life through our relationships to both human and non-human beings. Including award-winning films from artists, Karen Kramer and Jacqueline Donachie, KINSHIP asks what is the extent of our relationships with other bodies (human and otherwise)? How do we relate to the cells and viruses that comprise our body? How do scientists relate to patients and how do patients relate to others? Who or what connects us, who is host and who is guest?

    BLACK BOX is supported by the Cultural Negotiation of Science, Northumbria University and the Biosciences Institute, Newcastle University.

    Featuring the works Tomorrow Belongs to Me (2006) and Hazel (2015) by Jacqueline Donachie
