The pandemic as bio art

The pandemic caused laboratories to leave their rooms. New protocols and procedures keep appearing. Human creativity causes a wide variety of variations of those everyday rituals. One big bio performance. Is it even possible to imagine a bio art project with a bigger reach and impact? Can any artistic project come close? Artists partake in this global performance without being its creators.

Karolina Żyniewicz

Liminal being, artist and researcher, graduate of visual arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź. PhD student of the Nature-Culture programme in the Artes Liberales department at the Univeristy of Warsaw. While carrying out her artistic projects in biology labs, she also conducts ethnographic research which is the basis for her meditations on non—human actors' role in creating modern culture. In her work, she highlights the epistemic and didactic dimensions of art. Between 2016-2018, she collaborated with educational departments of the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and Zachęta National Art Gallery. Żyniewicz uses these experiences in her own liminal practice.
