Gina Czarnecki

Gina Czarnecki’s work encompasses film and installation, with an emphasis on human relationships to image, disease, evolution, genetic research, created in collaboration with biotechnologists, computer programmers, dancers and sound artists. Czarnecki’s projects confront issues surrounding the convergence of biology and technology, and the possible corruption of the human genetic mix.

This still is from a piece entitled Infected “a film about the nature of the physical body in the context of future technological possibilities, seen through dance and digitally manipulated imagery. The new bio-engineered body is still a sexual, stark, brutal, organic, pounding bloody system with ripping tendons. It is beautiful and repulsive, indulgent, curious, emotional, un/controlled, breeding, changing…”

The movement of the body within the piece is unnatural and creates an uncanny impression. Her work is in the Liverpool Art Prize and I have voted for her as my favourite artist in the competition!
