Leah Clements 'Beside'

Beside, a new work by Leah Clements, presented on 8 December 2015, as part of the 21st Century programme. Beside builds on Clements' research into empathy and intimacy and looks specifically at the scientific phenomena of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy and quantum entanglement. For the event, Clements hosted a conversation with two specialists who met for the first time: Sian Harding, Professor of Cardiac Pharmacology at the National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College, London; and Simone Severini, Reader in Physics of Information at University College London.

As part of her commission, Clements will produce an online element of the work, using medical archives and other visual material relating to Takotsubo cardiomyopathy and quantum entanglement, which will be available on Chisenhale Gallery's website.
