Artist Description

Stills from the video ORGANISM on show at my second solo exhibition at StateoftheArt Gallery and 2016 Turbine Art Fair.

There are currently 10-14 million species of life on Earth. Each of us is an organism, quite unlike others, but at the same time also the same. Human embryos resemble the embryos of any other mammal, bird or amphibian during certain developmental stages because all animals carry very ancient genes dating back to the origin of cells. We’re created from the same dust, elements and atoms and governed by the same natural laws – even though our human-made laws don’t grant the same rights to other organisms.
