Hybrid Bodies Catalogue
Few organs are as charged as the human heart. Beyond its anatomical function, it represents immense personal significance and speaks to the age-old question at the core of human selfhood… “Who am I?” Advances in medical transplantation technologies raise urgent questions about bodily integrity, personal identity, and the relationship between recipients and their donors.
The Hybrid Bodies catalogue features essays and artworks from prominent
artists, theorists and art historians, who address the Process of
Incorporating a Transplanted Heart (PITH) research team’s efforts within the multifaceted world of transplant medicine.
69 pages. 8.5 inches square.
Hybrid Bodies catalogue launch, October 19, 2016, at Concordia University, Montreal.
