Bricolage

Art meets science in an ambitious new installation from WA’s Nathan Thompson, Guy Ben-Ary and Sebastian Diecke that brings microscopic ‘biobots’ to life inside a custom-built incubator. From blood, silk and heart muscle the artists bio-engineer individual cellular units, which self-assemble into living, kinetic sculptural forms large enough to see with the naked eye. This thought-provoking exhibition invites us to consider the human body in a world beyond its control.

Bricolage is accompanied by a visual text by acclaimed WA writer Josephine Wilson exploring the concept of ‘bricolage’ and the relationship between art and science.Presented in association with Perth Festival and SymbioticA.
