Why VISCERAL? There is something that makes us a little uneasy, perhaps even queasy, about the idea of creating artworks from living tissue. VISCERAL incorporates ten years of SymbioticA’s challenging work at the frontier between fine art and biotechnology and forms a series of provocations and puzzles around the nature of the living and non-living. Curated by Oron Catts and Dr Ionat Zurr, the works are occasionally playful, frequently uncanny and may even appear to be sentient.
