Art meets science in an ambitious new installation from WA’s Nathan Thompson, Guy Ben-Ary and Sebastian Diecke that brings microscopic ‘biobots’ to life inside a custom-built ceramic incubator.
From blood, silk and heart muscle the artists bio-engineer individual cellular units, which self-assemble into intriguing living and kinetic sculptural forms large enough to see with the naked eye. This thought-provoking exhibition invites us to consider the human body in a world beyond its control.
Bricolage is accompanied by an experimental text by acclaimed WA writer Josephine Wilson exploring the concept of ‘bricolage’ and the relationship between art and science. Best known for her Miles Franklin Award Winning novel Extinctions, Wilson also writes poetry, art criticism and for performance. In this new experiment with the written word, her text will occupy the gallery space itself.
