Lucy Beech @ De La Warr Pavilion
1 October 2018 - 2 December 2018
Lucy Beech’s solo exhibition Hyperstimulation presents a new film accompanied by a text by Naomi Pearce. The looping film, entitled Reproductive Exile, follows the fictional story of a woman undertaking cross-border fertility treatment. The film is set in private international clinic in the Czech Republic, where lack of legislation associated with reproductive rights sustains a booming fertility industry. Here the intended parent is introduced to ‘Eve’ (short for Evatar), a robotic version of the female reproductive system. Addressing gender bias in biomedical research and based on developments in reproductive science, ‘Eve’ is the future of drug testing in women and personalised medicine.
