Aljoscha (Ukraine/Germany)

Personal exhibition "Bioethics"

Ў Gallery of Contemporary Art presents the exhibition project "Bioethics" by Ukrainian artist Aljoscha on the topic of the change of biological life forms in the future.

The project concept is based on the opportunity to pose questions about the ethical and the aesthetic sides of the gene modification and the implementation of medical engineering in the life of a society.

Because of the inevitable emergence of new life forms in the society, changes in art are likely to happen as well. According to Aljoscha, such changes will give the opportunity to artists to influense the process of birth and rearing of new biological forms and to the transform museums and galleries into the exposition gardens for their demonstration.

The exhibition includes drawings, individual objects, a film and two organic installations.

Aljoscha was born in 1974 in Hlukhiv (Ukraine). In 2006 he graduated from the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg, Austria. Since 2008, the artist has actively participated in international exhibition projects (Spain, Italy, Austria, Germany); he is also the winner of the XXXV Premio Bancaja in the category of Sculpture (Spain) and the prize-winner of the project “Schlosspark 2009” (Germany). He lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany
