Helen Pynor’s work addresses emotional and physiological questions around the liminal space between life and death.

As part of UNSW Galleries’ 2016 program, Pynor and her collaborator Peta Clancy will produce a new immersive installation for The Patient, an exhibition opening in June 2016.

Curated by Performance Space curator-at-large Bec Dean, The Patient casts the artist as a subject of medical science through the lens of new commissions and historical works by leading international practitioners.

The Galleries’ 2016 program explores some of the most pressing challenges of our time – the health and wellbeing of mind, body and natural environments – by bringing together new research and international contemporary art.

“Our 2016 program offers an international perspective on how cutting-edge research, transformative ideas and new technologies can engage with global challenges,” says Dr Felicity Fenner, UNSW Galleries Director.
