Anything But the Eyes is an exhibition of the fine art research practice of Jennie Jewitt-Harris. The work explores the relationship that we have with our eyes, and the concerns that underpin the common reluctance to consent to donate corneas after death. Jennie’s drawings, collages, and assemblages express what influences us over life-times. She uses her experience in medicine to inform her practice which considers our relationship with time, connection with others, and concerns about mortality.
