Kristy Depper at Anna Leonowens Gallery

1891 Granville Street, HalifaxKristy Depper Installation view
By Some Miracle
March 25 - April 5
The photographs in Kristy Depper’s MFA thesis exhibition delve into the world of infertility, mapping the products, treatment spaces and human body. Depper has created three works – one explores the vast array of fertility aids available both over the counter and online; another takes the viewer inside Canadian fertility clinics from coast to coast, documenting both the spaces and the treatments; the third maps estrogen levels with microscopic photographs of saliva, signaling the optimum moment for conception.
