OF THE SNAIL
Biopharma, Pythagorean Occultism, and Patriarchy
Join us at UNIT/PITT for a talk by Sharona Franklin. An homage to Pythagoras; bridging female emancipation, historical mythos of the snail and biopharmalogical constellations. Talk programmed by Matthew Shields in conjunction with his exhibition Papa was a Garbage Man.
“the snail represents male and female energy, the Pythagorean spiral of life, and taking it all at your own pace.” – excerpt from Rental Bod, 2016
