Sharona Franklin: The Hermaphroditic Freedom of the Snail

December 13, 2017

Biopharma, Pythagorean Occultism, and Patriarchy

Wednesday, December 13, 7:30 pm

“the snail represents male and female energy, the Pythagorean spiral of life, and taking it all at your own pace.”
Sharona Franklin (Rental Bod, 2016)

Sharona Franklin’s talk will be a homage to Pythagoras, bridging female emancipation, historical mythos of the snail and biopharmalogical constellations. This talk accompanies Matthew Shields’s exhibition Papa Was A Garbage Man, on view at UNIT/PITT until January 13.
