• Deeper in the Pyramid (3)

Jackson, Melanie and Leslie, Esther, 2018, Show, Exhibition or Event, Deeper in the Pyramid (3)

Abstract or Description:

Milk is polymorphic with an inclination for promiscuous collaboration, whether it be with bacteria, with cartoon avatars, with economics, pornography, genetic re-calibration or the politics of race. It is fundamental to all mammalian bodies, whilst also being one of the most technologised fluids on earth. Deeper in the Pyramid engages with the bio-economy and its representations, through the webs of care, exploitation and collective fantasy that interconnect life forms at every scale.

The work comprises animation, sculpture, and a graphic novel with writing by Melanie Jackson and Esther Leslie, taking us on a journey of lactic abstractions, through the webs of bio-invasion and collective fantasy that interconnect various life forms through milk, its technologies and representations. The ontologies of species and gender have always been shaped by our relations with this primal liquid, and ensuring a ready supply has driven research in genetics, fertility and robotics. It is now open for radical transformation as new bio-organisms emerge, and real science merges with the fantastic.

Deeper in the Pyramid is also delivered across Grand Union in Birmingham (2 February-12 April) and Primary in Nottingham (12-21 April). See items in this repository: http://researchonline.rca.ac.uk/3366/, http://researchonline.rca.ac.uk/3490/, http://researchonline.rca.ac.uk/3513/.
