Art Gallery of West­ern Aus­tralia Un­til 3 De­cem­ber, 2018 West­ern Aus­tralia

‘Biomess’ cu­rated by Robert Cook, is a col­lab­o­ra­tive project be­tween Sym­bi­oticA at the Uni­ver­sity of West­ern Aus­tralia, West­ern Aus­tralian Mu­seum, and the Art Gallery of West­ern Aus­tralia. Since 1996 the artists Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr have been ex­plor­ing the re­la­tion­ship be­tween art and sci­ence. To­day they present odd­i­ties from the nat­u­ral world, ‘Franken­steins’ if you will. This in­ter­est in or­gan­isms and tem­po­rary bi­o­log­i­cal struc­tures com­ple­ments the fes­ti­val ‘Un­hal­lowed Arts’ cel­e­brat­ing the 200th year since the pub­li­ca­tion of Mary Shel­ley’s gothic hor­ror novel Franken­stein.
