Opening Night / “Biomedia: illness, art, and medicine” / Mexico

At November 2019 I participated in exhibition “Biomedia: illness, art, and medicine” at Querétaro Museum of Contemporary Art, Mexico.
Is an itinerant video exhibition that brings together artistic proposals from different part of the world that incorporate biotechnological methods to address, question, or decode medical knowledge surrounding the body and illness. The exhibition has been carried out between performance artist Felipe Osornio “Lechedevirgen Trimegisto” and Meritxell Rosell and Lula C. Sánchez editors of CLOT Magazine.


At the exhibition I represented video documentation of “PA1N MAP” project.
The text I read in video was translated to Spanish.
Attention: for first I show video in public.

Biomedia: illness, art, and medicine is an itinerant video exhibition that brings together artistic proposals from different part of the world that incorporate biotechnological methods to address, question, or decode medical knowledge surrounding the body and illness. 

The curational line of the projects starts from the concept of biomedia defined by Eugene Thacker as particular mediations of the body and optimizations of the biological in which “technology” seems to disappear completely, adhering to a constant, consistent and methodical investigation of the techno-philosophical questions: ‘What a body can do?’ raised previously by thinkers such as Baruch or Deleuze. 

What can or cannot do a sick body? How appropriate or problematise medical knowledge? These are some of the questions that this exhibition seeks to make visible directly from the hand of artists who, through their works, dynamite the conventions around the role played by medical science in our current societies. Over time, medical science has marked the separation between health and disease, directly impacting the relationship we maintain with our own bodies and environments. Biomedia: illness, art, and medicine focus on the particular cases in which biological components and processes are (re)contextualised for artistic purposes to erase the line between concepts such as art and science, biological and technology, patient and doctor, health and sickness, and life and death. 

The exhibition has been carried out between performance artist Felipe Osornio “Lechedevirgen Trimegisto” and Meritxell Rosell and Lula Criado editors of CLOT Magazine, an online publication platform dedicated to the crossover of art, science and technology. 

The selected artists’ group by the curational team involve Cecilia BulloTh3MaxHelen Pynor and Peta ClancyMarta de MenezesLuis GraçaQuimera RosaCaro NovellaDani d’EmiliaOncogrrrlsGaël(le) Emilia, and Lechedevirgen Trimegisto.

FEEDBACK 4 PA1N MAP/ M A N I C | The Big Anxiety Festival

FEEDBACK 4 PA1N MAP PROJECT

In October 2019, Max participated in a festival dedicated to mental health.
At the festival, Max presented a video documentation of the “PA1N MAP” project.
*Feedback: authorship by curator Ivana Jovanovic.
“Happy to provide you with feedback and interactions people had with your work.
A few key things stood out when we did the screening of the work in the lecture theatre on opening night. I had a few people come up to me who spoke about how brave it was that you shared this project and process of recovery from self harm. A lot of people were interested in the Kombucha skin samples we had displayed, and about the process of making them. A few people found the video very difficult to watch because of the nature of the content, and that it is a very personal work. Many people over all who did experience the video talked to me about how it was a very important to show this kind of work, that although it was challenging, they felt like it was a necessary thing to show in an exhibition that talks about mental health.”
