For MAPs Eco Spirit Exhibition Fiona Davies presents: Blood on Silk: Turn to, turn away. This is one of the works produced in the collaboration between the late Dr Peter Domachuk, Dr Lee-Anne Hall and Fiona Davies. This is/was a collaboration examining the biomedical uses of silk particularly as it relates to blood.
Slung high from the underside of the front terrace the red and white striped panels partially block the front door; the point of transition from public to private; a point of vulnerability. Referencing the barber’s pole, formerly the sign of a surgeon, they are both ready to dance and ready to turn away.
