Cellcraft I workshop (for artists and curators)

DKK 75.00 - DKK 100.00

Date

May 27 2016 11:00 - 16:00

Description

In Gina Czarnecki and John Hunt’s living artwork Heirloom, cells grow almost imperceptibly. Keeping them alive and healthy is, however, far from easy.

In two hands-on workshops, Gina Czarnecki and scientist Dr. Rod Dillon, who collaborated on Gina’s Quarantine and Wasted artworks, will introduce basic techniques for gathering, growing, and caring for different kinds of cells. Participants will encounter microscopes, kombucha skin, and DIY bioreactors, and discuss with Gina and Rod why artists and scientists might want to work together and the ethical issues they might face.

The workshops take place in the study room of Medical Museion’s The Body Collected exhibition. The exhibition explores how the human body has been collected for medical research over time, including the storage of cells and DNA in biobanks today. Curators from The Body Collected will join the discussions about how cells are collected and stored in the different worlds of art, science, and museums.

Cellcraft I is targeted at artists and curators, and will focus on how artists can use and conceptualize biological practices, and how bioart can be curated and displayed.

The workshop will be in English, and is suitable for those aged 16+. Tickets cost 100 kr (students 75 kr) to cover materials and lunch, and include museum entrance. Spaces are very limited.

I Gina Czarnecki og John Hunts levende kunstværk Arvestykker gror celler næsten usynligt. Men det er langt fra nemt at holde dem sunde og i live.

I to hands-on workshops vil Gina Czarnecki og forskeren Dr. Rod Dillon, der tidligere har arbejdet sammen på Gina’s kunstværker Quarantine og Wasted Debates , introducere grundlæggende teknikker for indsamling, dyrkning og vedligeholdelse af forskellige slags celler. Deltagere i workshoppen vil blandt andet møde celler under mikroskop, ”hud” af kombuchasvampen, og ’gør det selv’ bioreaktorer. Undervejs er der mulighed for at diskutere med Gina og Rod, om hvad samarbejde mellem kunstnere og forskere kan føre til, og hvilke etiske spørgsmål de konfronteres med.

De to workshops foregår i studieværelset tilknyttet Medicinsk Museions udstilling Det indsamlede menneskes. Udstillingen udforsker, hvordan den menneskelige krop gennem tiden er blevet indsamlet til brug i medicinsk videnskab – fra hele kroppe og organer på glas til vor tids samlinger af celler og DNA i biobanker. Kuratorerne bag Det indsamlede menneske vil deltage i diskussionerne om, hvordan celler indsamles og opbevares i kunst, videnskab og på museer.

Cellcraft I er målrettet kunstnere og kuratorer og vil fokusere på, hvordan kunstnere kan bruge og konceptualisere biologisk praksis, og hvordan biokunst kan kurateres og udstilles.

Workshoppene vil være på engelsk og er egnet for alle over 16 år. Billetter koster 100 kr (studerende 75 kr) til dækning af materialer og frokost, samt indgang til museet. Der er begrænset antal pladser.
