A form of transport, a shocking symbol and a life-saving substance: blood is a visceral substance that connects every one of us. With 'Blood: Life Uncut', the complex fluid is given its own exhibition, presented by Science Gallery London.
The show promises to 'tell the story' of blood through a four-month programme of live performances and workshops like 'Jordan Eagles: Blood Equality', a series of light installations illuminating the blood donations of gay men. It is a shocking reminder that, in the US and the UK, LGBT+ men are prevented from donating blood unless they have been celibate for a year.
Fittingly 'Blood: Life Uncut' will be a fluid show, moving venues throughout its run. From July until November, related events can be found at King's College London Guy's Campus, the Old Operating Theatre Museum, and the Copeland Gallery in Peckham.
