Lucie Strecker (Berlin/ Vienna) and Klaus Spiess (Vienna) are currently collaborating on issues of the relation of presence and representation in the fields of art and science. The exhibition shows the different understandings of nature of both Strecker and Spiess, expresssed by their different way of dealing with genetic and imunnologic data. While medical scientist Klaus Spiess understands nature as an entity in need of constant active and cultural developpment, artist and director Lucie Strecker find the patterns in nature itself to provoke performative and artistic principles.
The exhibition P53-VMAT2 hasenblut is using specific genetic data of hare blood used by Joseph Beuys and creates a moleculobiological subversive creature from it. Due the artists plan to extract the DNA from an art object from the past, questions about the authorship and ownership in this case of DNA-based absorption of the historic work arise.
