Contemporary art

Seeing that philosophy is a big factor in the trends of contemporary art, I have tried to bring it closer with philosophers and scientists of the 17th Century who also had bold and radical ideas which could inform and inspire an artist today.

As part of the 13th Baltic Triennial I have given a presentation at the Contemporary Art Centre (CAC) in Vilnius. It followed the history of transhuman operations in the 17th Century, especially transpecies blood transfusions by Jean-Baptiste Denys and others.

I have also taught a 3-day workshop on natural and artificial objects at the Rupert Institute for Contemporary Art.
