Artist Talk: Marta de Menezes
Saturday 31 March
Based in Lisbon, Marta de Menezes is celebrated for her work at the intersection of art and biology, demonstrating the use of cutting edge biological technologies as a new art medium. Speaking following the launch of contemporary art exhibition Synthetica, which presents a retrospective of her acclaimed works including Immortality for Two and The Origin of Species, Marta de Menezes will discuss the idea of what we consider 'natural' today and how the questions of our own identity can be explored in this work. Hosted by co-curator Dr Sarah Thomas, Edinburgh International Science Festival.
