bio-art

19/10/2009

remember simon starling? winner of the turner prize in 2005, he dismantled a shed, rebuilt it as a boat, sailed it down the rhine + rebuilt it into it’s original shed form. his exhibit piece in the tate modern did lack in inspiration, being just the shed with a little written information on what he actually did.

none the less, i do like the idea of transformation, of looking at what things could become for better or for worse. i looked at two artists aziz + cucher whilst in college, + have more recently looked at patricia piccinini, all of whom look at biological transformation using photoshop + sculpture.
