This set is selected by Dubai-based artists Ramin and Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian. These objects are included in their installation 'I Prefer Talking to Doctors about Something Else', which was commissioned for the 22nd Biennale of Sydney as part of the Nirin Wir program at the Powerhouse Museum. Incorporating and disorganising objects from the Museum's collection such as satellites, anatomical models and textiles, the artists make a sweeping arc across the themes of grief, the body and healing. Humans, animals, food, adornment, medicine and other technologies entwine creating an intimate dialogue across organic, handcrafted and technological objects.
