Benjamin Forster: Kynic (2013)

Artist Statement:


    Slide sample of human canine hybridoma, drawings on paper.

    This installation speaks to the contradiction between scientific ‘reality’ and its expression within popular consciousness. The monstrous kynical cell is reduced to an almost invisible dot, unable to live outside of the supports of the laboratory, preserved dead between glass. While the surrounding drawings, allegories of the ancient kynic, reinforce stereotypes and play with the bombastic representation of human anxieties over scientific interventions. Step right up and see this freak of nature – a totem for renewed kynicism.
