Hybrid Bodies: PHI
Running at Montreal’s Phi Center, the exhibition Hybrid Bodies: An Artistic Investigation into the Experience of Heart Transplantation is a demonstration of such unmitigated collaboration. Launched in 2010 by a committed trans-disciplinary research team, across cardiology, philosophy, nursing, psychiatry, and sociology, practitioners invited four artists to work on the emotional and psychological impact of heart transplants on recipients. In this case, the remarkable innovation lies with the scientists, knocking at the door of the art world and going beyond mere dilettantism, as pointed out by UK participant Andrew Carnie in The Observer in 2002:

“The practice of science is not isolated from the world we live in. Science has its politics, its economics, its fashions even. And anecdotally at least, some of the scientists involved in ‘sci-art’ collaborations report an intellectual engagement in them that goes further than personal enjoyment. It’s not just that it allows them to get out of their labs a bit more; it also seems to offer a different way of looking at their own work as scientists.”

Exhibited works: Lacuna, A Change Of Heart, Heart and Mind Who is Knocking, A Tender Heart.

Abstract

Running at Montreal’s Phi Center, the exhibition Hybrid Bodies: An Artistic Investigation into the Experience of Heart Transplantation is a demonstration of such unmitigated collaboration. Launched in 2010 by a committed trans-disciplinary research team, across cardiology, philosophy, nursing, psychiatry, and sociology, practitioners invited four artists to work on the emotional and psychological impact of heart transplants on recipients. In this case, the remarkable innovation lies with the scientists, knocking at the door of the art world and going beyond mere dilettantism, as pointed out by UK participant Andrew Carnie in The Observer in 2002:

“The practice of science is not isolated from the world we live in. Science has its politics, its economics, its fashions even. And anecdotally at least, some of the scientists involved in ‘sci-art’ collaborations report an intellectual engagement in them that goes further than personal enjoyment. It’s not just that it allows them to get out of their labs a bit more; it also seems to offer a different way of looking at their own work as scientists.”

Exhibited works: Lacuna, A Change Of Heart, Heart and Mind Who is Knocking, A Tender Heart.

Accepted/In Press date: 23 January 2014
Additional Information: Four internationally exhibiting artists, Alexa Wright (UK), Catherine Richards (Canada), Andrew Carnie (UK), and Ingrid Bachmann (Canada), have had access to an innovative research study exploring the process of incorporating a transplanted heart. This interdisciplinary study was conducted by a leading research team based at the University Health Network in Toronto. The team consists of:- Dr. Heather Ross, a cardiologist and Director of the Cardiac Transplant Program at the University Health Network (Toronto); Dr. Patricia McKeever, a health sociologist (U of T); Dr. Susan Abbey, a transplant psychiatrist (University Health Network); Dr. Jennifer Poole, a health scientist (Ryerson University, Toronto); and Dr. Margrit Shildrick, a philosopher (Linkoping University, Sweden).While significant research has been conducted in transplantation using the bio-medical model, few researchers have explicitly connected organ recipients’ experiences and cultural views about transplantation to the notion of embodiment. Hybrid Bodies focuses on the lived experiences of heart transplant recipients, translating their stories into medical and academic literature as well as into artworks.
