JUNGLE MEMORY

"Jungle Memory"

 

Andreas Greiner (b. Aachen, Germany, 1979) lives and works in Berlin, Germany. After studying medicine, anatomy, and art in the Institute for Spatial Experiments (Institut für Raumexperimente), Greiner has devised a practice that encompasses time-based, living and digital sculptures, photographs, and video, with a concentration on the influence of anthropogenic interventions on the form and evolution of “nature.” Incorporating artificial intelligence, living organisms such as algae, flies, and chickens, genetically modified cells, and at-risk ecosystems, Greiner’s art effects a shift of perspective in which the classical divisions between nature and culture, between human and non-human are undone. Not unlike setups for scientific experiments, his works examine man’s impact on the biological and atmospheric processes of our planet. Lately Greiner has exhibited his work at the Mönchehaus Museum Goslar as the 34th recipient of the Kaiserring emerging-artist award and is going to be part of the Yokohama Triennale 2020.
