looking at embodiment and connections

At the Biotech Art Revisited show in Adelaide next week I will be exhibiting my DVD installation: “Changing Fates_matrilineal”. This is a work that explores both the biological and material aspects of embodiment. I haveĀ referenced writing and artefacts left behind by my grandmother: Mollie, juxtaposed with digital videomicrograph image data of adult stem cells taken from my own blood. As well as being connected by memories, Mollie andĀ I share genetic links, particularly through our mitochondrial DNA.

“Biotech Art Revisited” at the Experimental Art Foundation, Adelaide, (08) 8211 7505. Opening 6pm Wednesday 8 April, ends 2 May 2009. http://www.eaf.asn.au
