BioArt Knowledge is a visually stunning and ground-breaking exhibition of artworks by internationally renowned British BioArtist Anna Dumitriu which explores our relationship to science and biomedicine at a time when we face rapid changes.
This breath-taking and beautiful exhibition weaves together alchemy, and the history of science and medicine, with cutting-edge research in biotechnology, including CRISPR DNA modification, genomics, and vaccine development. Dumitriu’s strange and affecting artworks are created hands-on by the artist both in the lab and in the studio and can be seen as sublime relics of her transdisciplinary, laboratory-based practice. She works with an extensive network of scientific collaborators across the world.
Her obsessions with the history infectious diseases, medical ethics, antibiotics, and cell biology speak urgently to the concerns of wide audiences and create an emotionally affecting experience that addresses issues of both global and local relevance, important to everyone.
