Exquisite Cords


As Bridport Arts Centre comes to the end of its 50th anniversary year, we are pivoting from reflecting on the past to thinking about what the next 50 years might hold; for the Arts Centre, for Bridport, for us all.

In Exquisite Cords, artist Lisa Moro has imagined a future world where our DNA not only shapes our physical traits but also influences our personalities, behaviours, and even our destinies. She challenges conventional notions of identity, free will, and the nature versus nurture debate. What role does genetics play in defining who we are? Can our DNA predict our future with uncanny accuracy, or are we ultimately masters of our own fate?

We invite you to contemplate the profound implications of genetic determinism and the interconnectedness of all living things, and ultimately ask you, what kind of future do you want?
