pink slime caesar shift: gold edition
Pink Slime Caesar Shift: Gold Edition is a suite of live performances, video, set design, installation and paintings that reflect on the value and nature of gold. They investigate a diverse range of topics: gold-particle genetic engineering, gold as a principle of wealth, labour and trade, and how one’s body and ‘fate’ can be altered by ingesting gold. Part of an ongoing series, this component explores biolistics, a method of shooting gold microparticles into cell walls to introduce a string of synthetic DNA into a cell organism. Installed at the Asian Civilisations Museum, the presentation extends the artist’s interest to activate a conversation with collections, archival artefacts and notions of display.
