PATRICIA COATES aka LUCY PALUSTRIS
26. August, 7.30 pm
Satellite Berlin – Art in collaboration presents this artist talk by Canadian artist Patricia Coates. Patricia is in Berlin for a 6 months residency, granted by the CANADA COUNCIL for the ARTS and the Ontario Arts Council.
Patricia’s alter-ego Lucy Palustris ventured to Berlin via transatlantic migration. “Project Seed Vault” (random mutation) will explore transgenic, invasive and threatened species along with a whole bunch of flora and fauna specimens and 'madlab' paraphernalia raising questions of the potential repercussions of tampering with biological evolution.
