The Art of Deception
What would your heart look like, if you could manipulate it for aesthetic purposes?
The exhibition The Art of Deception consists of a collection of 18 transformed pig hearts that challenge contemporary notions of beauty and offer a vision on society's pursuit for perfection. By a method called decellularization artist Isaac Monte and Toby Kiers 'cleansed' the pigs hearts from their living cells, leaving them with a series of so called 'ghost organ'. These blank canvas were then used as tools for the ultimate deception: the transformation of inner beauty, from grotesque to perfect.
The World of Living Art
After your visit to The Art of Deception we will take you on a tour over Mediamatic's Biotoop where you will learn more about Bio-Design and other living works of art such as Pure Gold, Hard Water and the Myco Brewery.
