Lynn Hershman Leeson: Origins of the Species (Part 2)

Until 9 August 2015

Modern Art Oxford

An early practitioner of installation and interactive art, Hershman Leeson has received international acclaim for work that explores privacy in an era of surveillance, the relationship between real and virtual worlds and the mutability of identity in an increasingly mediated society.

This landmark exhibition conveys the diversity of Hershman Leeson’s pioneering multi-disciplinary practice. In a site-specific work, with a new element produced for Oxford, The Infinity Engine captures the senses by inviting visitors in to a dynamic installation that mimics the conditions of a genetics research lab. This installation takes a critical look at the ramifications of experimentation with genetics, presenting the ethical dilemmas facing scientists, and society, today.
