Bacterial biofilm, blood, paper: with the aid of these materials, the exhibited artworks challenge the idea of the body as an enclosed entity, and explore it through the notions of leakiness, contamination, and hybridity.
Leaking. Mattering. comprises works from recent years such as Works on Paper (2015), which investigate the physical and tactile properties of paper, and the installation Lymph (2016), whose classical aesthetics and controversial materials tackle the physiological origin of disgust. Two new series emerging from the artist's research about bacterial biofilm are premiered in the exhibition: Wombs (2018), a series of extra-bodily organs, and Skin Studies (2018), a sample collection which manifest her fascination for skin.
