Opening: 
Thursday, 9 February 2023 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Incorporating sculpture, sound, video, text and animation work, the exhibition explores the rich and surprising history of fertility drugs, a witches brew of ingredients that laid the path for our modern day medicines. At a time when reproductive rights are being curtailed across the globe and innovations in medical science are occurring at a rapid pace, this bold exhibition by El Morgan attempts to make the clinical tangible, unpacking progressive science and complex legal and ethical responsibilities. Taking inspiration from her own experiences, having recently received a bill of £350 from a fertility clinic to continue to store some of her embryos, Morgan attempts to explore her frozen bits in their suspended state, to begin to unpick the medical and social structures that have enabled their pausing.
