Christa Donner
January 18 - March 07, 2008

During her residency at SPACES, Donner teamed up with biologist Andrew Yang to create an animated video and a series of large-scale drawings. Borrowing from the reproductive models of varying organisms to produce new visions of human reproduction, she was deeply influenced by current issues such as the availability of fertility drugs and the ever-growing possibilities of human genetic modification. Donner expanded her project by interviewing more than 30 local women on the topics of fertility and identity. These stories, along with biologically inspired imagery, culminate in a new zine project, which examines the (sometimes frightening) consequences of confronting one's own reproductive power.
