W 0.2.

In W.02 and W.03, slugs are hermaphroditic allies in the exploration of inner and outer ecologies of fleshy desire. Science is unresolved whether terrestrial slugs are affected by mammalian sex steroids. Different species display elaborate mating behaviours, such as hanging choreographies or shooting love darts into the partner’s body.

In the non/living piece W .02, a custom-made extra-bodily organ hosts two cell cultures in a hybrid ecosystem. Artist’s own vaginal epithelial cells and slug egg cell share growth medium, communicate chemically through it, and stage a dance of the two organisms at a cellular level.

Instalacija W.02 predstavlja umjetni izvantjelesni organ – sintetičku utrobu koja sadrži dvije stanične kulture, povezane u hibridnom ekosustavu. Umjetničine vlastite epitelne stanice rodnice i jajne stanice puža dijele medij za rast, (bio)kemijski komuniciraju kroz njega i kroz ovaj dinamički proces pokazuju svojevrsni ples dvaju organizma na staničnoj razini.
