One evening in October 1995, the BBC aired striking footage of a nude mouse with a human ear growing on its back. This evocative living object became one of the defining images of the late twentieth century, a symbol of our increasing capacity to shape and alter living bodies.
DeMonstrable, curated by SymbioticA Director Oron Catts with Associate Professor Jennifer Johung and Associate Professor Elizabeth Stephens is an event set to commemorate, respond to, and reflect on the multifaceted cultural and scientific impact of the Earmouse. New work commissioned for this exhibition is presented together with 20 years of artistic, scientific and popular culture responses to the Earmouse.
This project has been supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
