BIO
C-LAB is an art collective and organisation that engages with critical and contemporary amalgamations of art, science and technology. Headed up by London-based artists, Howard Boland and Laura Cinti, it focuses on artistic explorations of meaning and idiosyncrasies involving life both organic and synthetic.

C-LAB is internationally recognised as an interdisciplinary art platform that generates and participates in both artistic and scientific forums brokering discussions on the intersections of art and science.

Recent activities include exhibiting living synthetic biology artworks at Techfest 2012, Mumbai, India and curating public art exhibitions for the EU funded European Public Art Centre - EPAC (2010-2012), a European-wide collaboration between organisations exhibiting public artworks focusing on art, science and society for which C-LAB is UK partner.

Right or Risk? The 1st Public BioBrick: Exploring Public Access to the Tools of Synthetic Biology


Dates:
Mon Sep 24, 2012 19:00 - Mon Sep 24, 2012

Location:
London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Synthetic Biology is turning genetic engineering into a simple exercise, with thousands of DNA components - BioBricks - available to program bacteria. What if ordinary citizens want access to these tools?

Now, for the first time, UCL have teamed up with a group of ‘biohackers’ (citizen scientists in molecular biology) to create the world’s first ‘Public BioBrick’.

Join us for an evening exhibition and Q&A hosted by UCL iGEM with C-LAB.

Grant Museum of Zoology, 24th September, 7-8.30pm
Free drinks will be served (with a unique molecular science twist!)

António Caramelo’s DREAMING OF A BUTTERFLY


Dates:
Fri Nov 04, 2011 18:30 - Sat Dec 31, 2011

Location:
London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

The European Public Art Centre - EPAC (http://epacpublic.eu) is a collaborative engagement between organisations across Europe focusing on intersections between art, science and society. It consists of eight outdoor exhibition spaces established in participating countries that include Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Portugal, Spain, Poland, UK and Iceland to establish the first ever Europe-wide contemporary art venue.

Now in its second phase of the EPAC programme, artworks rotate between participating countries. In London, the Portuguese artist António Caramelo will present his artwork DREAMING OF A BUTTERFLY (http://epac2.co.uk). By interactively utilising surrounding sound, the work produces an illusion of living butterflies inside the box.

Caramelo’s exhibition follows on from award-winning UK artist Anne Brodie’s BEE BOX (http://epac.c-lab.co.uk) currently on show in Helsinki, Finland.

This public art exhibition is co-ordinated by C-LAB (http://c-lab.co.uk) and its venue partner Spitalfields (www.spitalfields.co.uk).

Anne Brodie's BEE BOX


Dates:
Thu Sep 01, 2011 18:00 - Tue Nov 01, 2011

Location:
LONDON, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

C-LAB is delighted to announce the first public art exhibition held simultaneously across eight countries in Europe focusing on the relations between art, science and society with support from the European Commission as part of the launch of the European Public Art Centre (EPAC). As the UK representative, award-winning artist, Anne Brodie, will present her artwork, ‘BEE BOX’, for the first time.
The ‘BEE BOX’ reminds us of the invisible disappearances of our pollinators.  Bees, like us, form communities of workers capable of generating intelligent social interactions. Brodie offers a poetic reflection on the fragility of these communities.
