Alicia King works with new and experimental media to raise questions about the use of technology to manipulate nature and its increasing impact on biological systems, including the human body. This exhibition will include materials not seen before in our galleries, including tissue cultures, electromagnetic materials and fluorescent gasses. King is interested in the promotion of technological supremacy that places us continually on the brink of the ‘future’.
