BioArt Revolution | BioArt Revolution is an innovative and unique exhibition for the local cultural space. Featuring Anna Dumitriu, an internationally recognised British bioartist, the exhibition explores the relationship between science and biomedicine at a time when we are facing rapid and revolutionary change.
This breathtaking, beautiful exhibition weaves together alchemy, and the history of science and medicine, with cutting-edge research in biotechnology, and robotics including CRISPR DNA modification and neural networks. Dumitriu’s strange and affecting artworks are created by the artist hands-on in the lab and 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 of infectious diseases, medical ethics, antibiotics, and genomics, 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.
The exhibition includes sculptures and installations made using bacteria, DNA, altered vintage objects, 3D printing, textiles and digital technologies.
A programme of events throughout the exhibition are designed to attract the enthusiasm of visitors and participants of all ages interested in art, science, history and the future.
The project is part of the national cultural programme "Timișoara – European Capital of Culture in 2023" and is funded through the European Echoes Timișoara 2023 programme, implemented by the Center for Projects Timișoara, with funds allocated from the state budget, through the budget of the Ministry of Culture.
