Watch lecture about EXPLO! / EXTINCT!

A video recording of me giving a lecture about my solo exhibition EXPLO! / EXTINCT!, 12 February 2019, at Kaolin, Stockholm.

I’m talking about the background for the exhibition, the complexity in resurrecting the mammoth and my ideas of the implications with genetic engineering in an aesthetic point of view. About challenging norms of beauty and skill in making and the divergence in wanting to enjoy beauty, exotism, fiction and a living mammoth though knowing it always comes at a price. I’m also connecting this exhibition to some of my previous works as well as showing images of the process in making.
