Navel Gazing, a new exhibition by Glasgow based artist Kirsty Hendry, draws on her research into the history of medicine and ventriloquism.
Navel Gazing centres on the articulate and fractious character of ‘The Gut', who rails against their subjugation to the ‘rational’ brain and performs a canny inversion of the historic function of the City Observatory. Whereas the observatory here on Calton Hill once looked out into space to track the stars in transit, this exhibition explores our inner-space as a new threshold of knowledge.
Join us for an online discussion about Navel Gazing and the themes explored in the film with artist Kirsty Hendry and performer Aby Watson.
The discussion will be hosted in Zoom, and a link to the online film will be shared in advance.
