BioArt Alchemy: Works by Anna Dumitriu

16 September 2022 - 30 October 2022

This exhibition by internationally renowned British BioArtist, Anna Dumitriu, draws threads across time from the history of science and medicine to cutting-edge research in synthetic biology and genomics. Her strange and affecting objects take the form of relics of Dumitriu’s sublime laboratory-based processes created in contemporary biomedical research settings, interwoven with historic stories of contagion and alchemy.

Anna Dumitriu is an award-winning British artist who works with BioArt, sculpture, installation, and digital media to explore our relationship to infectious diseases, synthetic biology and robotics. Past exhibitions include ZKM, Ars Electronica, BOZAR, The Picasso Museum, HeK Basel, and MOCA Taipei. She holds artist-in-residence roles with the Modernising Medical Microbiology Project at the University of Oxford, and the National Collection of Type Cultures at the UK Health Security Agency. Current collaborations include the Institute of Epigenetics and Stem Cells at HelmholtzZentrum in München and the University of Leeds.
