To the edge of what I wasn’t, I was

For her first exhibition with the gallery Rebecca Glover presents a collection of new works inspired by pregnancy and early motherhood. 

When the placenta first forms it invades the uterine blood supply in a similar way to how some cancer cells bypass the immune system. Something akin to a ‘take over’. From this moment the mothers body is no longer her own and becomes a curious new environment of criss-crossing boundaries. Here the body can be experienced as both an individual and an entire ecosystem.

Through sculptures, sound, video and performance the exhibition explores this negotiation of boundaries between individuals, delving into fungal networks, rooted ears, polyphony and the interconnected, bound up nature of societies and species.

What’s like to listen through a shared body? What does it mean to have agency within an ecosystem?
