In the late 1950’s retired nuns in an Italian convent were asked by the Vatican to donate their urine to a fertility company, which was part owned by the then Pope’s nephew. From this urine, the company extracted a hormone to inject into infertile women. Gallons of urine was collected. Morgan’s screen-printed work The Discovery of Nuns’ Urine (2022) features an edited excerpt from a screenplay written by an employee of the drug company about their discovery of the power of nun’s urine.
The Discovery of Nun's Urine is currently on display at Castlefield Gallery as part of El Morgan's solo exhibition Tale of the Frozen Bits (12 February - 12 March 2023).
