About the Exhibition
Kim Morgan’s works create a bridge between science, medicine, and art. Blood and Breath, Skin and Dust focuses on eight years of Morgan’s interdisciplinary research and artistic production. Through immersive installations, sculptural objects, and sound and video work, the exhibition explores materiality and the body. Inspired by experiencing vibrant matter, such as blood and skin cells, through the lens of an electron microscope, Morgan’s bodily-sourced imagery can both attract and repel. It also creates opportunities to wonder at the matter of being human in the “mattering” universe.
The exhibition is funded by Arts Nova Scotia, the Canada Council for the Arts and Halifax Regional Municipality. Individual works have received support from Artpace San Antonio, Arts Nova Scotia, Dalhousie Medical School and Ferno Canada.
