V&A BioArt Exhibition: Unruly Objects, 24-25 September 2022

Discover how BioArt can help mitigate climate change and join the drop-in lab to create your own tiny marble sculpture painted with ‘living latex’.

This free exhibition at V&A South Kensington is taking place from 24 -25 September 2022, 10.30 – 17.00.

Unruly Objects explores ways of capturing carbon using cyanobacteria encapsulated into a kind of ‘living latex’ to mitigate climate change. It also investigates the possibility of conserving antiquities through the enhancement of their microbiomes, the place of BioArt within museums, and the use of blockchain technologies to store conservation data.

The project, which is supported by NBIC, was developed by Anna Dumitriu in collaboration with Simone Krings, Dr Suzie Hingley-Wilson and Professor Joseph Keddie from the University of Surrey. Join the Unruly Objects Lab to create your own tiny marble ‘unruly objects’ painted with ‘living latex’ and keep your tiny sculpture or leave it with the exhibition to become part of a new BioArt work. Activity open to adults and children (5+ years) accompanied with an adult.
