Andromeda Mission: Anarcha Prototype II (2019)
Andromeda Mission: Anarcha Prototype II
This sculpture - the first in the HFO trilogy - is part of a series of proposed Space vessels. The works deepen HFO’s exploration of the material and reproductive qualities of Dark Fecundity, monumentalising the stories of three known women who endured unethical experimentation by J. Marion Sims. This model is named after Anarcha Westcott. Continuing the SF and sea fearing convention of naming vessels after notable people from Earth’s history, these sculptures centre the women’s neglected stories via an epic Space odyssey. The sculpture was exhibited at Site Gallery (2019) and as part of The London Open, Whitechapel Gallery (2022).
