A thread of Endocrine-disrupting chemicals weave a speculative story of ritual and healing, where scientific and policy outcomes are intertwined with artistic processes. Artist Jemma Woolmore presents her latest project 'These Relations Are Forever'; a collaboration with scientists from the EU Joint Research Centre.

These Relations Are Forever is an ongoing project that will bring together the knowledge of four researchers, whose work sits at different stations along a flow of chemicals; from agriculture via law and policy through bodies and into water. The project reframes their scientific practices as relations of care, using ritual as a thread to make connections across bodies, scales, cycles and scientific disciplines. The artist will discuss her process and the challenges of art/science collaborations.
