"Creating the Human" Seminars - Autumn/Winter 2017. The Limitless Body

Our "Creating the Human" Seminar Season focuses on how the human body can be created, re-created, misinterpreted and modified to devise our own, or others', physical and/or mental identities.


The works of interdisciplinary artist Kira O’Reilly use the uncertain boundaries of bodies as the starting point for their enquiry. Specifically, O’Reilly asks what kind of societies become possible in collaborations across species, organisms and bodies, and she explores these questions through sustained and experimental engagements with politics, biopolitics, change (social, corporeal, chemical, reactive) and the complex relations between the human and the non-human.

Kira O’Reilly: Untitled (Bodies), edited by Harriet Curtis and Martin Hargreaves, is the first book to offer an in-depth engagement with her many works across diverse formats. Bringing together writings by major artists and thinkers, such as Marina Abramovic, Shannon Bell and Tracey Warr, alongside extensive documentation of the artist’s work from two decades of practice, the contributions engage with such topics as ideas of performance, feminist political aesthetics, biotechnical practices, image-making and the intersections of humans and animals. The book also includes interviews, archive material and O’Reilly’s own writings.

This event will mark the publication of Kira O’Reilly: Untitled (Bodies).

Speakers will include Kira O’Reilly, Harriet Curtis, and others to be announced.

Tickets are not available HERE but at Untitled (Bodies) via This Is Live Art
