Lunch time Talk and Performance | Marie O’Connor and Mairead Delaney at the Science Gallery

Wednesday 18 January, 1pm to 2pm

Marie O’Connor, author, health correspondent and Chairperson of the Survivors of Symphysiotomy (SoS) group, will give a lunch time talk on the practice of symphysiotomy. The talk will be followed by a new performance work from Mairead Delaney, who has worked extensively with the SoS group.

Marie will discuss aspects around the outright violence perpetrated on unconsenting subjects of the symphysiotomy experiment, as well as the insidious violence inflicted during the SoS group’s ongoing campaign for justice.

The talk and performance will be given in the wider context of Design and Violence, Science Gallery Dublin’s current exhibition, run in Partnership with MOMA New York. T​he practice of ​pubiotomy (​​a variant of ​symphysiotomy​)​ is represented by a Gigli Saw in the Design and Violence exhibition.

The lunchtime talk is curated by John Conway.
