ABOUT

Portrait by Anja Wiesen 2015

Deeply fascinated by biological processes, Margherita Pevere is a visual artist and researcher investigating decay and transformation as they are common destiny of human and non-human matter. Her practice features a unique combination of organic and technological materials: she grows bacterial cultures, manipulates paper and photographic film, collects organic relics, captures ephemeral lights with digital video and plans to store a digitized collection of memories on bacterial genome.
Pevere holds a degree in Political Sciences and Arts and New Media and is PhD candidate at Aalto University, School of Arts, Design at Architecture in Helsinki. She is member of the Finnish Bioart Society and collaborates with Berlin DIYbio group BioTinkering e.V.. Most recent exhibitions include the Article Biennial – i/o lab, Stavanger (NO), curated by Hege Tapio and Nora Vaage; transmediale Vorspiel – Green Hill Gallery, Berlin, curated by Noemie Richard and Martin Reiche; the Dutch Design Week – BioArt Laboratories, Eindhoven, curated by Jalila Essaidi; State Festival, Kühlhaus, Berlin, curated by Daniela Silvestrin.
