Anne Duk Hee Jordan’s work includes drawings, hand-built robots, edible landscapes, sculpture, film and sound. It is mainly the other life forms, insects and plants, that live alongside humans on Earth that she lovingly observes, invites and casts as lead characters in her art works. Together with Pauline Doutreluingne, she has created The Worm: Terrestrial, Fantastic and Wet, a film installation in which the viewer is given a fascinating insight into the world of worms. It explores biological, physiological and sexual aspects of the worm through soft sculptures, film and sound. The exhibition is a colourful and hallucinatory celebration of the worm in all its forms.
