The Biomachine: Proteins in Praxis Exhibition is a collaboration between 16 students from BA (Hons) Fine Art, Arts University Bournemouth, The Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC), Oxford and The Radcliffe Science Library (RSL) also in Oxford.

Anya Bliss was one of the students, part of the exhibition, and one of the five students involved in the production team who worked closely with the SGC and the RSL to organise and curate the event.

The Art of Dazzle and War, TheGallery AUB, Bournemouth, UK.

During the 18th February - 25th April 2019, Dazzle & The Art of Defence Exhibition at TheGallery AUB, Bliss performed as a member of The Noematic Collective. 'The Art of Dazzle and War' consists of two performances in response to The Dazzle & The Art of Defence Exhibition.

"In response to the exhibition, The Noematic Collective consisting of AUB Fine Art students, in collaboration with Richard Waring, BA (Hons) Fine Art Course Leader, will create a new and live experimental art work. Through the manipulation and disorientation of sound and vision the art work will disrupt and confuse the viewers sensory perceptions.

Taking inspiration from John Zorn’s 1988 album Cobra, The Noematic Collective meet weekly to perform sonic tests. This group has grown out of the BA (Hons) Fine Art Degree at AUB. Their aim is to emphasise audible awareness of objects by trying out radical new ways of understanding daily experience." - AUB

(IN)Visible Exhibition, BUMF Gallery, AUB Campus, Bournemouth, UK.

(IN)Visible exhibition explores works by artists with hidden disabilities. Anya Bliss exhibited her sculpture, Pin Cushion.

“Pin Cushion is a representation of the neurological pain experienced from living with fibromyalgia. The painful sensations include tingling, numbness, prickling, burning, and stabbing among a variety of other symptoms.

The sculpture is a purposefully Mini piece to leave room for other fibromyalgia-associated ideas to form. For example, the brain-like shape could be a reference to the cognitive problems and migraines experienced by people with fibromyalgia. It could also demonstrate an alternative treatment option, specifically acupuncture, which helps to ease fibromyalgia pain by reducing stress and acting as a coping mechanism.” - Anya Bliss
