The exhibition “latent bones” explores the relationships between our bodies, the biomaterial they consist of, and the systems and structures with which they are intertwined. It is a consortium of different perspectives, artistic and methodological practices through which we seek to cast new and old light on various matters regarding the body and its state: alive, dead, sleeping, or in stasis; integral or dissected; real or fictional. From these perspectives a diverse array of questions and lines of thought emerge, through which we reflect on the counter-effects of modernization, the ways we perceive and convey meaning to bodily matters, and how these are shaped through art, science and technology.
