Closing this week, I was a "Seer" for the Taboo-Transgression-Transcendence in Art & Science in Corfu Greece curated by Dalila Honorato and Adam Zaretsky. I produced eight new works to be on display that probe the nature of the forbidden and aesthetics of liminality.
Below are grotesque works that reflect some of the primary themes of in the TTT Conference: Xenotransplanation and artificial wombs.
I thought having the pig be an artificial womb for a human was a nice inversion on taking the organs from the pig for human transplantation. However, astounding ... just yesterday a story linked below, says pigs may actually become artificial wombs of the future.
The other works are related to research about plastic particles entering our bodies, being found in 100% of all human placentas tested. It is estimated there are 16,000 plastic chemicals, with at least 4,200 of those considered to be “highly hazardous” to humans, currently in circulation; pun intended. Plastic particles from washing machines and dryers are a grand chemical experiment, on we humans and more than human others.
What are the impacts of roundup ready, corn consumption and any other pesticides in our bodies?
Glyphosate, has been linked to cancer, respiratory irritation, dizziness, headaches, nausea, and diarrhea and Long-term exposure is associated with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, kidney cancer, autism, and Alzheimer's.
Exposure to Roundup during pregnancy or infancy may increase the risk of autism spectrum disorder.
Portions of these works, were generated with AI and then composited in photoshop.
Other artists involved were: WhiteFeather Hunter, Natalie Jeremijenko, Marko Markovic, Kim Doan Quoc, Prathima Muniyappa, Anastasia Mandel, Shih Wei Chieh, Weeratouch Pongruengkiat, Elizabeth Littlejohn, Uroš Veber, Viktoria Koniaeva, Kelly Tarenidi, Elli Leventeri, Serafim Parsaloglou Marathias.
Thanks to Adam Zaretsky and Dalila Honorato at Athens School of Fine Arts’ Annex of Rethymno (Crete) for this invite and for organizing this conference and exhibition. I cannot wait to see them all framed in the Athens School of Fine Art permanent collection.
