Dear Organ

 

Summer 2022 the Science gallery Rotterdam invited fellow artists, scientist and philosophers to learn and think about Organ transplantation. During this exciting summerschool I was invited to give an artist talk about my methods and create a new work about the topic.

 

I was inspired by the research on decellularized organs and their potential to transform the lives of those in need of a transplant. The organ featured in the work is stripped of all its cells, becoming a blank skeleton awaiting new DNA to inhabit it. The personal stories presented in the installation capture diverse perspectives on organ transplantation inspired on true stories of donors and recipients. They address existential questions of identity, personhood, and how receiving another person's organ can influence one's sense of self.
