Jordan Eagles: Blood Work

@ International Museum of Surgical Science

1524 N. Lake Shore Dr., Chicago, IL 60610

Opening Friday, September 14th, from 5PM - 9PM

On view through Friday, November 30th

For over a decade, Jordan Eagles has garnered public and critical attention for his signature use of a unique artistic medium—blood. The artist applies animal blood, which he procures in large quantities from slaughterhouses, to plexiglass panels and suspends its fluid, organic forms within layers of transparent UV resin through an experimental process of his own invention.

The BLOOD WORK exhibition at IMSS encompasses two galleries: one dedicated to “paintings” created with fresh blood, decomposed and pulverized blood, copper, and medical gauze; and the other housing an installation of “blood projections,” in which overhead projectors cast shadows from the translucent painted panels onto the walls and viewers’ bodies.

This exhibition is the latest installment of the Museum’s ongoing “Anatomy in the Gallery” exhibition series, which has explored the intersection of medicine and contemporary art since 1998.
