This is a short video of the work in situ at the Bioscience Centre at the Centre for Life in Newcastle. The final exhibition space is particular poignant for this work due to the nature of the work carried out at the centre. Research into issues of infertility as well as treatments are carried out in this building (among lots of other things, of course). As this project is about the family line, it seemed particularly apt to show the piece in this venue. The little worker bees in this place are aiming to help keep family lines going, going, going. Sometimes there is success and sometimes there isn’t. It’s amazing to think how fragile our family lines are. How they can charge through the past, push through amazing odds and yet, for some of us, we become the end of the line.
This is where my tour ended.
