What are the social inequalities of women being treated for IVF, living through the Covid pandemic?

Sharon Ferris, 40

The Embryo responds to the current climate and the inequalities faced by infertile, single women and same-sex couples that are delayed access to fertility treatment. The work is a visceral look at the barriers, meeting the woman, which can cause a rollercoaster of emotions and the challenge of keeping pace with bureaucracy, physicality and ownership. The Embryo is a 3d visualisation of the process of IVF, and how it can go in many intangible directions, some fruitful, some unexpected and some dictated by our government.
