Limited Edition Giclee prints
Amanda Baum and Rose Leahy look well into the future with their work, imagining a “microbiome pharmaroom” for 2068. The pair explore the overuse of antibiotics and cleaning products—working closely with scientists and other experts in the field—which could lead to a mass-microscopic disappearance. “As humans, we are host and home to a multitude of microorganisms—the human microbiota, a personal microbial ecology that exists around and within everyone,” the artists tell me.
This is a unique and limited edition print of Host (2019), which was part of Welcome Home! at Elephant West in September 2019. Archival giclee on Hahnemuhle paper, with portfolio and certificate of authenticity.
