Fungkee Supercoating at Polarities Exhibition

Fungkee Supercoating Exhibition


November 29th 2019 * March 1st 2020  

MU Artspace, Eindhoven, NL 

Fungkee Supercoating is the result of my research into the development of a 100% natural fungal coating for bacterial leather. Last June me and my team won the Bio Art & Design Award. Together with cell biologist Aneta Schaap-Oziemlak (Bio-Inspired Think Tank) and professors Paul Verweij and Sybren de Hoog from the Radboud University we worked on this very exciting project which we will continue after the exhibition which opens on the 29th of November. 

With Polarities, from 29 November 2019 until 1 March 2020, MU is questioning the extremities of our age. Is economy truly the opposite of nature, female the opposite of male, extinction the opposite of survival?

Polarities presents the three winning projects of the Bio Art & Design Award 2019, developed in collaboration with leading Dutch researchers in the life sciences. They are shown alongside recent works of international artists and designers whose course isn’t set by a compass of contradictions. Follow the call of the lost Kaua’i ‘?‘? bird, feel the shifting of the Earth’s magnetic field and contribute to the quest for female sperm. Change is inevitable, but don’t worry too much: we are all ecological anyhow.

Opening 29 November 2019 from 20.00!
