Heather Dewey-Hagborg: Artist Talk
The transdisciplinary artist and educator Heather DeweyHagborg is known for her critical and research-based practice, which also incorporates biohacking. She garnered international attention with her biopolitical art project ›Stranger Visions‹ (2012—14), which consists of a series of portrait sculptures based on the analysis of the DNA found in discarded objects, such as hair, cigarettes and gum. With her experimental film documentary ›T3511‹, shown in the festival exhibition, she continues her look at the genetic evaluation of seemingly anonymous biomaterials, which then become a source of erotic obsession. In this artist talk Dewey-Hagborg discusses her approaches and current projects.
