Event Details

Transformation Studies is an art-science exhibition of experimental mixed media works. The show forms part of an ongoing series of creative outputs that consider the potential of cell culture and genetic engineering technologies to acquire an alternative genetic legacy. This instance reflects on the process of transforming the artist Svenja Kratz’s blood cells into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) – cells capable of becoming any other cell type and able to self-organise and form 3D multicellular structures such as embryoids. The resulting cells are envisaged as unconventional offspring for dissemination and proliferation via global research networks.

Exhibition opening: Thursday October 19. 5.30pm

Exhibition runs: Friday October 20- Saturday November 11

The ANAT Synapse program is supported by ANAT (Australian Network for Art and Technology) and is made possible through the generous support of the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund.
