Siobhan McGibbon | Ireland | Exhibition

Exhibition: Human Being and Human Becoming

This exhibition includes sculptural, collage and audio artworks by artist Siobhan McGibbon and third class children from Scoil Chroí Íosa. Together they have been working to imagine a future world where advances in science have transformed the human body into something quite different from what we know today. Come and see for yourself what happens when art, science and youthful imagination meet to speculate on a transhuman future.
