Jasmin Marker, Artist in Residence 2018

Portfolio of previous work:


Artist Statement: Jasmin’s practice is placed at intersections of art and science involving a particular focus on members of the microbial kingdoms. By engaging with a variety of bio-cultures she seeks analogies to societal cultures and explores relevant scientific, anthropological and philosophical concepts.
While her research originates from a dedication to environmentalism and sustainability it extends deeper into questioning the evolution of human psychology pertaining especially to the advent of agricultural religion.
Her work identifies with the New Animism promoting empathy and solidarity with the trillions of invisible creatures living around and within us. Jasmin does not follow a strict scientific protocol but subverts culturing techniques to playfully engage with the subjects of her choice. The outcomes frequently manifest as installations involving live cultures and their apparatus or their artefacts often combined with video and performance.
