Artist Talk: Oron Catts
Saturday 31 March
Oron Catts is the director of SymbioticA, an artistic research laboratory at The University of Western Australia. His interest is life; more specifically the shifting relations and perceptions of life in the light of new knowledge and it applications. Discussing his new work in progress in collaboration with artist Dr Ionat Zurr, Crossing Kingdoms, Oron Catts will reflect on his recent residency at The University of Edinburgh as part of a research project on cross-kingdom cell fusion. Together with co-curator Dr Sarah Thomas, Edinburgh International Science Festival., we will cross the borders of life, both that are tangible and conceptual.
