Mireille Bourgeois (Artistic Director/Founder, IOTA Institute) will present “Bio Art Near Futures,” in Portugal at FEMeeting an international consortium of women in art, science and technology (11-17 Sept 2022). This talk will explore the impact and influence of bio art on the curated art and non art space, and address the ways in which artists create new presentation spaces through the display or performance of embodied biological actions. In a comparative discussion, Bourgeois will consider the theories and discourse(s) of bio art to the methods used in collaborative work with non-human collaborators such as living organisms created in a lab environment and performances with species found on our bodies (ie: COVID-19),  or with intangible mediums such as embodied ancestral knowledge in Indigenous tattooing. Here, approaching biological futures require that we take a step back to consider bio art outside of a chronological historical order and/or biological process, and instead look to the expansion of our current moment, and the layered human and non-human involvement within that expansion.
