Norwegian artist Siri Borge won the support of PNEK to attend the Summer Sessions residency programme in V2 – Institute for Unstable Media in Rotterdam where she developed an art installation «Undiscovered Territory».
About the work: Undiscovered Territory has its starting point in a series of MRI-scans of the artist’s genital area. They are presented as 49 different slides, both from the front to the back, and from the top to the bottom. These images are laser printed on plexiglass, and presented both horizontal and vertical, according to what perspective they were captured.
The work makes reference to the lack of research on the female body in medical science. The answer as to why this lack of research exists is as simple as it is provoking: the lack of interest in female health issues, which leads to the lack of funding, which leads to the lack of research.
This project was produced as part of the Summer Sessions Network for Talent Development in a co-production of PNEK and V2_ Lab for the Unstable Media.
