Blood on Silk: Transmission
Index Project Space
60 Hutchinson Street
Tuesday Nov 8th 6 -8 p.m.
The Blood on Silk project pairs the seemingly unrelated. In this exhibition Davies investigates the overlay of seemingly unrelated points of transition by addressing the modes of transmission connecting the older silk trading routes with the newer routes for bio-products including blood.
Rotating through the Index Project Space will be a weekly special, a package of traces of video by Fiona Davies. Changing on a Thursday, the videos will be ephemeral both in content and lifespan.
The video traces are beautiful but also pinpoint the harder-edged issues of trade and globalisation, the issues which return like spectres again and again from the past to inform the present.
