From small Perth publisher Contradiction Press comes Is this bioart?, a book irreverently answering the question what exactly is bioart? Illustrated by Sean Morris, quotes from various sources ruminate on what makes this particular art movement.
From overhearing ORLAN being interrupted by Goethe, the rant of Latour and the cynicism of Flaubert interspersed with a combination of artworks–many already well known as instances of bioart and exhibited as such – mixed with the seen, heard and imagined interpreted through illustrations.
Is this bioart? will be launched this Wednesday the 20th July at 6pm, at William Topp, 452 William Street, Northbridge. Window installation by Jessie Mitchell.
