Artist talk "From bodily fusions to united consciousness"

24 November 2022 London, Notting Hill

Art Design Human Studio is happy to invite you to an artist talk with Margo Trushina. 

We will discuss application of post-human theory in Margo’s work, the entanglement of agents and their interactions with each other on transcorporeal level undergoing physiological and consciousness transformations. 

In her work, Margo explores the intersection of bioart and new feminist materialist ethics. 

Interested in interactions between human and nonhuman actors, she redefines her notion of the self and others through the relationship with radical elements at an intimate level, where the boundaries between flesh and that of the world are porous, opened to new mutualistic alliances. 

The artist offers a subjective material vision of modern ecological problems by tying together substances of different nature — from steel and neon to corals and breast milk. Her fictional environments and sculptures reflect habitats and bodies affected by climate change yet still breathing, therefore calling for an ethical response. 

In the artist’s view, such interactions actualise almost neglected communication trajectories and promise to inspire new forms of perception, similar to what Laura U. Marks calls empathic nonunderstanding. 

Margo Trushina in a London based artist of a Russian origin. She holds an MA in Fine Arts from Chelsea College of Arts and an MA in Sculpture from The Royal College of Art.

Her work was presented at the Royal Academy of Arts (London), Museo D’Arte Contemporanea (Turin), 5th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, IK LAB Gallery (Tulum, Mexico) and many others. She is a finalist of the Broomhill National Sculpture Award, UK, 2016 and a Winner of the Ruinart Art Patronat Grant from Cosmoscow Foundation, Russia, 2020.
